  • About

    This grant is meant for collective action as a response towards an unexpected moment or opportunity for advocacy or mobilisation that may result in advancements for the rights of the Voice target groups; such as changes in legal decisions, policy and laws, or a shift in public attitudes and practices to eliminate discrimination, promote equal access and opportunities, enhance social well-being, confront injustice and/or encourage social development. Grants responding to a sudden opportunity are available from €5,000 to €200,000.
    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.
