  • About

    Do you work/have an interest in the following sectors; blogging, online radio/TV, social media, subscribers of online content and online content hosts or operating Internet cafes? Are you concerned about the new laws that have disabling and restrictive provisions that directly impacts the ability of citizens to exercise their freedom of expression in Tanzania (The Electronic and Postal Communications 2018, 2015 Cybercrimes Act, Media Services Act 2016, data protection bill)? Do these rules directly impact one or more Voice target groups? Is there a national opportunity for strategic advocacy or litigation, offline protests, or coordination of collective action that can lead to change in legal decision, policy/laws, a shift in public attitudes and practices?

    If you answer yes to the questions above, apply for a Sudden Opportunity Grant to promote the right to freedom of expression and fight cultures of self-censorship!

    This grant is available from Euro 5,000 to Euro 200,000 for an intervention that will last between 6 and 12 months.

    What do we wish to fund?

    Collective action that will impact at least one or more of the Voice target groups;

    • Women facing exploitation, abuse and/or violence,
    • People with Disabilities,
    • Age discriminated (youth and elderly),
    • Indigenous People and Ethnic Minorities.

    Voice has a strong preference for projects that intend to work with more than one target group to address overlapping vulnerabilities.

    Your project can look at any or all of the following themes:

    • Improved access to (productive) resources (finance, land and water) and employment,
    • Improved access to social services, health and education in particular, and
    • Space for political participation

    Who do we wish to fund?

    Applications are being accepted from a coalition, network or consortia with participation of human rights defenders, journalists, bloggers, NGOs and self-interested individuals or intellectuals who jointly and collectively seek the promotion and protection of civil and political rights of Voice target groups.
