VOICE: first global call for proposals


Learn from innovation

  • Maximum duration: 12 months
  • Maximum amount: Euro 200,000
  • Deadline: October 15, 2016

Her Excellency, Lilianne Ploumen, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation for the Netherlands launched Voice and its first global call for grant applications on September 1, 2016.

The first call for proposals is designed to help Voice, its potential grantees and wider community of stakeholders to learn from innovation. There exist many new, interesting and effective methods and approaches for supporting the Voice target group(s) (links to page on target groups) in participating in their own governance and improving access to resources and services.  For example, people who belong to more than one of the five target groups are more vulnerable to discrimination and therefore an emphasis on learning from programmes to address this phenomenon is encouraged.

Voice hopes to capture and stimulate learning of these methods so as to develop an evidence-base for future programming at national and global level.

Has your organisation, or an organisation you partner with implemented such innovations?

If yes, then you may be eligible for an Innovate and Learn grant to document, review, analyse, research and test your programmes, approach and/or methodology.

For more information, including the (eligibility) criteria, application form, and info-shop, please see the Call for Proposals page.
