Through this sudden opportunity grant, Voice Cambodia is calling on Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to undertake a collective action to address specific, unanticipated opportunities to influence policy or deal with a threatened/imminent attack on civil society space in Cambodia, especially one that could have a ripple effect or that can impact one or more of Voice target groups in one or more of the impact themes. It is an opportunity for strategic advocacy, mobilisation of CSOs and/collective action that can lead to change in legal decision, policy/laws, 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 no more than 12 months.

Possible interventions would require using nonviolent 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.

Grants responding to a sudden opportunity are available on a rolling basis and can be applied for at any time from the 1st September 2017 onwards when the Call for Proposal announcement has been made.
