Voice’s Uganda Innovate and Learn Grants: Empowering the Voice of Marginalized People

Deadline: 1 September 2018

Voice is currently accepting applications for its Uganda Innovate and Learn Grants program to focus on organizations that want to learn from innovation and/or to test and scale new approaches with a focus on human-centered innovations that are context-specific and relevant to empowering, amplifying and/or influencing the voice of marginalized and discriminated people to participate fully in society.

There exist many new, interesting and effective methods and approaches for supporting the Voice target group(s) in participating in their own governance and improving access to resources and services. The grant hopes to capture and stimulate learning of these methods to develop an evidence-base for future programming at national, regional and global level.

Voice strongly encourages applications that seek to inject innovative ideas and approaches in their work among marginalized groups such as, but not limited to the use of sports, theater performances (films, music, dance and drama) poetry, comedy, painting as well as the use of ICTs and social media among others.
