Gear Up! Kenya Influencing Grants

Offered by Oxfam International, Hivos and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of the Netherlands as part of Voice

This Call for Proposals, inspired by the context analysis, wishes to take advantage of the decentralised government system, where greater decision making power and finance are provided at local levels, to guard against the erosion of gains in the run-up to the 2022 Elections. Some Counties have seen increased citizen participation and promoted civil society activity as people have responded to opportunities to influence decisions that affect their lives.

Applications will be accepted from ONLY locally registered not-for-profit local organisations working outside of Nairobi. We however would like to continue working in the following counties – Tana River, Kilifi, Kakamega, Laikipia, Samburu, and Narok County. Applicants registered outside these Counties are nevertheless eligible to apply as far as they have a project base/office in the focal Counties and can provide the intervention there without undue travel cost on Voice. International organisations are NOT eligible to apply as lead organisations but can be co-applicants in case of consortium applications.
