Through this Sudden Opportunity grant, Voice in Tanzania is calling on Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to undertake collective action to address specific anticipated threats to marginalised and discriminated groups in Tanzania (Voice target groups mentioned above) in one or more of the Voice impact themes:
- Access to productive resources (for example land and/or employment)
- Access to social services (for example health and/or education)
- Space for political participation
It is an opportunity for strategic advocacy, strategic litigation, mobilisation of CSOs and collective action that can lead to change in policies/laws, legal decisions, or a shift in public attitudes and practices to challenge discrimination, promote equal access and opportunities, enhance social well-being, confront injustice and/or encourage social development.
This grant is available from €5,000 to €200,000 for an intervention that will last between 6 and 12 months.
Possible interventions would require using non-violent action, with active participation of human rights defenders, private institutions and companies, faith leaders, NGOs and self-interested individuals or intellectuals who jointly and collectively seek the promotion and protection of civil and political rights as well as the realisation of economic, social and cultural rights of the Voice target groups.
