  • About

    Is your organisation passionate about and adept at facilitating dynamic learning experiences with diverse groups of people? Do you have deep and extensive experience working with formal and informal groups, including unusual allies such as human rights defenders, activists and techies across Cambodia? Do you practice participatory, creative, and transformative approaches in linking together communities online and offline? Do you regularly identify opportunities for collaboration and research? Are you inclusive in your approaches/keen on ensuring no one is left behind?

    If your organisation said YES to at least three of the questions above, then you are the organisation we are looking for! You may also apply in a consortium to enhance your competitive competencies. 

    What are we looking for? 

    Linking and learning is at the heart of Voice. We aim to boost the collaboration, connectedness, sharing, listening, learning, creativity, innovation, and application of new knowledge amongst our grantees as well as with the wider community. We hope that this process produces evidence and innovative solutions to catalyse transformative changes for the most marginalised and discriminated groups.

    The Voice Linking & Learning community has flourished over the last three years. Various connections have developed within and across countries, learning exchanges have transpired, and the journey of creating a more inclusive tapestry of intersecting initiatives continue. In previous years, Voice in Cambodia worked with This Life Cambodia as the Linking and Learning Facilitating organisation. They were able to work with grantees and come up with various materials and learning set-ups including Communities of Practices and Communities of Stakeholders.

    We are seeking a dynamic learning organisation which will continue to facilitate the linking and learning between Voice grantees and other stakeholders, within and beyond the granted projects.  

    We are accepting proposals spanning 24 to 33 months and with a maximum budget of 250,000 EUR. Of the total budget, 50,000 EUR is to be set aside for joint activities at the grantee level, to follow up on the learning and new ideas generated during the linking and learning activities and exchanges.  

    Organisations who are led by one of the rightsholder groups listed below are strongly encouraged to apply. We are also open to applications from a consortium of organisations.

    These are the rightsholders that Voice works with globally, and we are keen on having a Linking and Learning facilitator in Cambodia working with all the five groups:

    • People with disabilities; 
    • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people;
    • Women facing exploitation, abuse, and/or violence;
    • Vulnerable elderly/senior citizens and youth ; and
    • Indigenous people and ethnic minorities.

    The successful organisation will support Voice in the continuation of the implementation of its linking and learning component and build on the work already in place, in close collaboration with the Voice country team in Cambodia. The organisation will further the support to Voice grantees in developing their linking and learning trajectory. They will promote the participation of members of the Voice rightsholder groups, and facilitate building communities of practice around issues and challenges that concern them. They will coordinate an online platform and facilitate offline meetings that support inclusive collaboration, including community members in geographically remote areas. They will organise events and meetings, develop thought-provoking pieces, and produce creative works to amplify the grantees’ voices at the local, national, and regional level.

    To better understand the kinds of grantees Voice has, we encourage you to take a look at the grantee’s in Cambodia and beyond. It is also highly recommended that you read the Cambodia context analysis update to see what issues Voice Cambodia will prioritise for the next three years.

    Who can apply?

    Innovate and Learn Grants are open to: 

    • Locally registered non-profit organisations based in Cambodia
    • Networks, consortia and coalitions with a locally registered non-profit organisation as the lead applicant
    • Locally registered Cambodian social enterprises (as long as it is clear from your statutes what the “social’ element is

     Voice has a strong preference for applicants who are either rightsholder-led or rightsholder-inclusive. An organisation (formal/informal) is rightsholder-led when it is governed and managed by members of the rightsholder-group(s). If the rightsholders do not play a role in the governance and management of the organisation, the organisation needs to be rightsholder-inclusive and describe how they have fully included rightsholders in the conceptualisation, implementation, monitoring, and/or evaluation of previous projects. The principle of “Nothing About Us Without Us” guides their work.

    International organisations cannot be a lead applicant but can team up as a co-applicant in the case of consortium applications.

    What we won’t fund

    • Organisations with an annual turnover of over €1 million.
    • Funding of commercial services, investment or other commercial activities. 
    • Projects led by current strategic partners of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation are not eligible for this call. In particular, those organisations funded under the “Power of Voices 2021-2024” Policy Frameworks.
