Apply for Voice’s Power to Unheard Voices: Kenya Empowerment Grants Program!

Deadline: 1 October 2018

Are you an emerging and/or informal group that is led by one of Voice’s target groups? Do you want to work on leadership and/or increasing confidence of and within your group members to work against stigmatisation of marginalised and discriminated groups? Do you have and/or wish to implement home-grown strategies in mobilising key state agencies at national and sub-county level to promote a positive image of your members and fight discrimination? If yes, then apply for the Empowerment Grants Program!

Voice believes that power needs to be redistributed into the hands of marginalised and discriminated groups in Kenya, allowing them to be empowered, accepted and participate fully in development.

  • Improved access to (productive) resources (finance, land and water) and employment,
  • Improved access to social services, health and education in particular, and
