  • About
    The Call for Proposals for Innovate and Learn grant focuses on organisations that want to learn from innovation and/or to test and scale new approaches with a focus on human-centred innovations that are context-specific and relevant to empowering, amplifying and/or influencing the voice of marginalised and discriminated people to participate fully in society. There exist many new, interesting and effective methods and approaches for supporting the Voice target group(s) in participating in their own governance and improving access to resources and services. The grant hopes to capture and stimulate learning of these methods to develop an evidence-base for future programming at national, regional and global level. Has your organisations implemented programming aimed at empowering, amplifying and/or influencing the voices of marginalised and discriminated communities? If so, then Voice could fund an Innovate and Learn Grant to document, review, analyse, research and test your programming, approach and/or methodology. An encouraged element of the project should be for scaling up the approach and methodology and an effective dissemination plan of the findings. Innovate and learn grants are available from €5,000 to €200,000 on a rolling basis and for a period of minimum 12 and a maximum of 24 months. We strongly encourage applications that seek to inject innovative ideas and approaches in their work among marginalised groups such as, but not limited to the use of sports, theatre performances (films, music, dance and drama) poetry, comedy, painting as well as the use of ICTs and social media among others.
