Target Groups

  • This Call for Proposals will help Voice in Laos meet its objectives. Voice will fund projects that focus on the following target groups:
    • People with disabilities
    • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans-gender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI)
    • Indigenous people and ethnic minorities
  • With at least one of the following target groups as a cross-cutting issue:
    • Age discriminated vulnerable groups notably the young or elderly
    • Women facing exploitation, abuse and/or violence

Often the most marginalised and discriminated are those who may be vulnerable due to multiple reasons. Therefore, Voice has a strong preference for projects that intend to work with more than one target group to address overlapping vulnerabilities.
