    Is your organisation passionate about facilitating dynamic learning experiences with diverse groups of people? Do you have experience working with civil society groups in Uganda? Do you use participatory, creative and transformative approaches in networking with other stakeholders? Does your organisation undertake research to identify what works and what doesn’t work in development work and replicate best practices?

    If your answer yes, you could be the organisation that Voice Uganda is looking for and, so you may consider applying for the Linking and Learning grant.

    What are we looking for?

    We are looking for a dynamic learning organisation to facilitate the Linking and Learning between Voice grantees and other stakeholders within and beyond the Voice projects. As an organisation, you may apply for a grant covering a period of 12 to 24 months with a maximum budget of €200,000. Linking and Learning provides a platform for collaboration, sharing experiences and best practices, learning from each other, exploring innovative ways of addressing challenges affecting diverse groups of people especially marginalised groups preferably using proven successful methodologies to infuse into the learning of the grantees as well as with the wider community too. It is expected that that this engagement will produce evidence and innovative solutions to catalyse transformative changes for the most marginalised and discriminated.

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

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

    Although we acknowledge all Voice target groups in Uganda and are looking at inclusive intersectional issues of people facing double discrimination. The successful learning organisation will support Voice in developing their own linking and learning strategies; promote participation of members of the target groups, facilitate building communities of practice around issues and challenges they face, organise events to amplify the grantees’ voices at the local, regional, and national level among others.
