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 civil society groups across the Philippines? Do you practice participatory, creative, and transformative approaches in linking together communities online and offline? Do you regularly identify opportunities for collaboration and research? If you and your organisation said yes to all of the questions above, Voice in Philippines is looking for you!

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-months and with a maximum budget of €200,000.

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 amongst 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.

In general, Voice in the Phiippines supports the following target groups:

  • People living with disabilities
  • LGBTI community
  • Women facing exploitation, abuse, and/or violence
  • Age-discriminated groups (seniors, youth, & children)
  • Indigenous people and ethnic minorities

The successful learning organisation will support Voice in implementing its linking and learning component. In close collaboration with the Voice team, the organisation will support Voice grantees in developing their own linking and learning.  They will promote participation of members of the Voice target groups.  And facilitate building communities of practice around issues and challenges that concern them. They will develop a platform that supports 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, regional, and national level.
