The Republic of the Philippines, or The Philippines, is a democratic republic in Southeast Asia situated in the western Pacific Ocean, and a low-middle income country with an estimated nominal GDP of $310.312 billion. As of 2014, it ranked 115th out of 188 countries in terms of HDI, which is at 0.668.
The country is home to a vibrant civil society, with a generally perceived supportive government. However, in terms of governance and politics, it is marred by issues of graft and corruption and lack of transparency and accountability. The quality of basic social services remains low and inaccessible to poor Filipinos, especially the most marginalised and discriminated sectors.
These sectors are the focus groups of Voice. They are face challenges such as: lack of access to legal protection and justice, social discrimination/stigma, abuse and violence, poverty and discrimination in employment, inadequate and poor social services and social protection, political exclusion and clientilism, invisibility in national data, and spatial exclusion.
Voice Philippines calls on civil society organisations to join hands and develop initiatives that will help address these problems, and support the empowerment of the marginalised and the discriminated.
Applicants are encouraged to examine situation and policy environment of the Voice target groups as laid out in an in-depth report. Proposals are expected to address at least one of the challenges stated in the report and illustrated in the baseline report infographics.
