  • About

    People who are considered “normal” by society share a large part of their worldview with the people around them. ‘Outsiders’, on the other hand, are considered “weird” because they are questioning a large percentage of those assumptions which the people around them are making about the world.  People will always feel that there is something wrong with them and they often get excluded.

    Through this grant, we are looking for either emerging and/or informal groups of ‘outsiders’ who want to work on building leadership and/or increasing confidence of their own to challenge and question stigmatisation and discrimination of people perceived as ‘weird’.

    We believe that by engaging those that the society has ‘othered’ are the needed allies to challenge the status quo.

    Do you consider yourself as an outsider? If you answered “yes” then consider applying to this Call for Proposals.

    What are we looking to fund?

    Project ideas that will focus on one or more of the following target groups;

    • Young women with disabilities;
    • Elderly women from indigenous communities facing exploitation, abuse and/or violence;
    • Age discriminated (Youth and Elderly) Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans-gender and intersex (LGBTI) persons;

    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 and citizen engagement.

    We accept proposals for small projects for a minimum duration of 12 months and not exceeding 18 months, ranging from €5,000 to €25,000.

    Where do we wish to fund?

    Voice Kenya wishes to consolidate its work and will only fund projects that will be implemented in the following counties that are still unreached and inadequately served; Garissa, Wajir, Kakamega, Vihiga, Bungoma, Kwale, Kilifi & Tana River.

    We encourage applicants to go through the Voice website to check currently or previously funded projects. If your project proposal is similar to any of the current grantees in any of the above mentioned counties, we encourage you to explore possible linkages to see what added value or complementary actions can be integrated.

    Who do we wish to fund?

    All applications MUST be target group-led. This means that the principle of “Nothing About Us Without Us” guides your work. You should demonstrate how the above mentioned target groups are involved in the design, implementation, evaluation, structure and governance of the project.

    If your organisation is small and/or emerging and not registered or have a bank account, you may need to partner with other formal organisations.
