  • About

    Does your organisation want to advocate and lobby for the proper implementation of current laws or for new policies? Do you want to build a network of like-minded organisations to amplify the voices of marginalised and discriminated groups? Do you want to influence and change your local community’s attitudes, practices, and processes towards a Voice target group?

    If you said yes to any of the questions above, apply for an Influencing Grant! We are currently accepting proposals from formally registered organisations, networks, coalitions and consortia for projects spanning a minimum of 18 months and a maximum of 36 months with a budget ranging from EUR 25,000 to EUR 200,000 (approx. IDR 350,000,000 to IDR 2,800,000,000).

    Influencing Grants are the most competitive and popular within Voice. Preference will be given to organisations led by Voice target groups and those still underrepresented by current grantees.

    Please note that the project needs to be implemented in the following provinces in Indonesia: DKI Jakarta, West Java, Central Java, East Java, West Nusa Tenggara, East Nusa Tenggara and South Sulawesi.
