Call for proposals: Voice by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Oxfam Novib and Hivos


Voice is a new innovative grant facility that supports the most marginalised and discriminated people in ten low- and lower-middle income countries in Africa and Asia. It aims to amplify and connect thus far unheard voices in efforts to leave no one behind.

Voice stands out from other grant-making programmes by developing a grant application and reporting process adapted to the five target groups and four grant types and that is accessible, user-friendly and innovative.

Voice is designed to support (local) formal organisations and networks as well as informal groups. There are four different types of grants listed below. 90 percent of the available grant budget will be allocated at national level while the remainder is available for global multi-country calls.

Grants with open applications

We strongly encourage all potential grantees to read the guidelines carefully, carry out the eligibility test (where applicable) and send any questions you may have to the Email address provided. This increases your chances of submitting a proposal that meets the criteria and objectives and hence of being successful.
