Call for Proposals: Voice’s Mali Empowerment Grants

Deadline: 5 March 2018

Voice is accepting proposals from informal groups or small organizations for its Empowerment Grants to raise awareness, promote transformational leadership, build self-confidence and fight stigma against the most marginalized and discriminated groups.

Voice Mali encourages for this Call for Proposals that address the dual vulnerabilities i.e. highlight the double or more issues that affect girls and / or older women.

The Empowerment grant is better suited to the target groups themselves and / or organizations that strongly involve the target group by giving it transformational leadership, as they expect a secure environment where the target group can express themselves with complete peace of mind.

Voice financed projects must have an impact on one or more of the following topics:

  • Improved access to (productive) resources (finance, water and land) and employment.
  • Improved access to social services, health and education in particular.
  • Space for citizen and inclusive participation.
