  • 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 right defenders, artivists and techies across Nigeria?
    • 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!

    What are we looking for?

    We are seeking a dynamic learning organisation which will facilitate the linking and learning between Voice grantees and other stakeholders, within and beyond the granted projects. We are accepting proposals spanning 24-33 months and with a maximum budget of €250,000. Of the total budget, EUR 50,000 is to be set aside for joint activities at grantee level, to follow up on the learning and new ideas generated during the linking and learning activities and exchanges.

    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 among 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.

    Organisations managed by one of the rightsholder groups listed below are strongly encouraged to apply. We are also open to applications from a consortia of organisations that are tech-savvy and with expertise in knowledge management.

    These are the rightsholders Voice works with globally, and we are keen to having a Linking and Learning facilitator in Nigeria being open to working with all five groups;

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

    The successful organisation will support Voice in implementing its linking and learning component, in close collaboration with the Voice team in Nigeria. The organisation will further the support to Voice grantees in developing their own 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 in order to amplify the grantees’ voices at the local, national, and regional level.

    In previous years, Voice in Nigeria worked with Co-CreationHub Nigeria as the Linking and Learning Facilitating organisation. They were able to work with grantees and come up with various materials, set-up and coordination of various Communities of Practices as well as Communities of Stakeholders.

    What we won’t fund

    • Organisations with an annual turnover of over €2 million.
    • An application where the grant awarded from Voice is more than 50% of the total annual income of the applicant organisation.
      • The way to calculate this is to divide the requested amount by number of years the project will be implemented. The result will then be divided by the annual income.
      • If the result of this calculation is over 50% you can either reduce the requested amount or team up as part of a consortium where you can add up the annual incomes
    • Funding of commercial services, investment or other commercial activities.
