  • About

    Are you an organisation that is up for developing creative and innovative projects with the Voice target groups?  Do you have a history of trying and documenting new things to help push the boundaries somewhat? Do you want to inspire attitudinal and policy change amongst people and government in Laos towards your target group? Do you want to try new ways to innovate and learn at a national an/or local level?

    If you answered “yes” to the questions above, then you may be the Innovate and Learn grantee Voice in Laos is looking for!

    Innovate and Learn grants are for groups and/or organisations interesting in testing and scaling new approaches that are human-centred and adapted to suit the local context. Innovate and learn grants are available from €5,000 to €200,000 on a rolling basis with two review cycles a year. Innovate and Learn grants are for a minimum period of 12 months and a maximum of 24 months.

    What do we mean by innovation? 

    For Voice, Innovation means anything that has not been tried before in a particular context, prioritising human-centred methodologies and approaches. If you have a new idea, method or approach, you are welcome to propose it in your application. Innovation also means using tried and tested influencing methods but for new purposes and /or with new target groups, audiences, geographical areas and/or themes.

    Voice encourages network, partnership and consortia applications because each organisation may bring new ideas to the project and each partner can learn from each other.  You may also wish to partner with "unusual suspects" like media companies, campaigners and artists who may encourage new ways of advocacy and influence.

    Here are some ideas, some outrageous, some less.

    The message should be clear: we are looking for creativity!
