Applicants are particularly recommended to integrate any of the following in their proposals:

  • Organising the sectors/groups, especially women facing exploitation and abuse and/or violence, LBTQI groups, persons with disabilities and age-discriminated and vulnerable groups.
  • Capacity development of small organisations and their members.
  • Awareness raising and education of families and communities.
  • Promotion of positive image of the marginalised sectors.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Informal groups through partnering with registered/accredited organisations
  • Small organisations with legal registration/local permit or accreditation and a bank account under the applicant’s name.
  • All applicants should be led and represented by at least one of the Voice target groups:
    • Persons with disability
    • Age-discriminated groups, notably the children/youth and the elderly
    • LGBTQI+ community
    • Indigenous peoples
    • Women facing exploitation, abuse and violence
  • An organisation (formal/informal) is target-led when it is governed and managed by members of the target-group(s). The principle of “Nothing About Us Without Us” guides their work. If the target-group(s) do not play roles in the governance and management of the organisation, the proposal needs to describe how the target-groups are fully involved in the conceptualisation, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of the project.
  • International organisations cannot be a lead applicant but can team up as a co-applicant in the case of consortium applications.
