    Available to innovation-oriented NGOs and Networks based in Uganda

    Is your organisation adept at facilitating dynamic learning experiences with diverse groups of people? Do you have deep and extensive experience working with civil society groups across Uganda? Do you practice participatory, creative, and transformative approaches to Leave No One Behind? Are you driven by the principle of Nothing About Us Without Us (NOW-Us)? And, most importantly, do you promote inclusive innovation to catalyse transformative change?

    If you and your organisation said yes to any of the questions above, Voice is looking for you!

    What are we looking for?

    We are seeking a platform to facilitate the launch of the Nothing About Us Without Us! Awards in Uganda, an inclusive innovation award in July or August of 2020 and 2021. Therefore, Voice is looking to award an Innovate and Learn grant spanning 24 months with a maximum budget of €200,000.

    In general, Voice supports the following rightsholder groups:

    • People with disabilities
    • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual and Intersex People
    • Women facing exploitation, abuse, and/or violence
    • Age-discriminated groups (seniors and youth)
    • Indigenous people and ethnic minorities

    The successful (network) organisation will support Voice to:

    • Work with the Voice country team to identify 10 organisations or initiatives from the Voice rightsholder groups in Uganda who implement amazing inclusive innovations to their empowerment or influencing practice;
    • Organise and facilitate a week-long special participatory programme on inclusive innovation for the 10 organisations or movements to reflect, refine, and ideate the next steps for their initiative;
    • Organise the award ceremony, preferably as a component of a larger event or celebration where different civil society members and stakeholders gather;
    • Support the winners in their inclusion innovation journey, including their participation in the Innovation Festival in the Netherlands;
    • Amplify and promote the NOW-Us! Awards to influence national conversations on diversity and inclusion;
    • Manage the contractual elements of this grant.

    Celebrating Inclusion’s key objective is to bring together rightsholder voices together and, through an Award, highlight unsung efforts to take us one step closer to a responsive and inclusive society.

    Who do we wish to fund?

    For this Call for Proposals, applications are only being accepted from organisations registered and based in Uganda. The organisation and its members should have extensive work experience and networks with the Voice rightsholder groups.
