Guidelines

Based on the results of the first cycle of the Influencing Grant, Voice offers tips for interested applicants:

  • Prioritise the key issues to be addressed by the project. These should be directly linked to the needs of the target groups, and contextualised to the situation of the target areas.
  • Describe how the target groups will meaningfully engage in the project. Advocacy efforts are more effective when driven or demanded by the target groups themselves. Voice follows the principle of nothing about us without us.
  • Demonstrate the likelihood of achieving the project goals and objectives by providing a strong link to the identified strategies and activities. Long-term projection is also encouraged, but it is important to show what is achievable within the identified project duration. Use SMART indicators.
  • Articulate clearly applicant’s previous efforts related to the project (direct or indirect). This is necessary in showing applicant’s commitment in achieving the project goals.
  • Integrate innovative approaches and methodologies. Voice promotes and supports effective solutions to address current social issues. Applicants are challenged to assess whether the proposed strategies are business as usual or actually breakthrough solutions.
  • Indicate how applicants will document their progress and what applicants are learning along the way. Applicants are highly encouraged to be creative and apply different media (e.g. video, podcasts, blogs, social media, etc.) to tell their stories.
