  • The (lead) applicant must be target group-led. This means that the target group governs and manages the organisation with the principle of “Nothing About Us Without Us” guiding their work. Additionally, the (lead) applicant must be registered in at least one of the countries in the region where their project will be implemented. For example: For a project in West Africa, the (lead) applicant needs to be registered in either Niger, Mali or Nigeria.
  • The only exception to the above is if the grant cannot be led by an organisation based in the countries due to the nature of the proposed project presenting additional security or safety risks. In this case Voice allows an application led by a target group-led organisation in a third country (preferably in a neighbouring country but also possibly outside Africa and Asia; if so required). Obviously the majority of the activities still need to be implemented in close collaboration with local groups in the Voice focus countries, taking security and safety into account.

How to Apply

Applicants can download the application form and budget form via given website.

Eligible Countries: Laos, Indonesia, Cambodia, Philippines, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria.
