Self-led Influencing in Action! Uganda Influencing Grant

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

This Call for Proposals is meant to take advantage of the upcoming presidential, parliamentary and local government elections, to ensure that the rightsholders Voice serves are well represented. We are looking for project ideas that strengthen the political power of those who are currently unheard, those who remain ignored by public opinion and power-holders, and those whose needs are being discussed without them at the table. With new leadership expected at National, Parliament, District and Local council levels, there are advocacy opportunities to advance the issues of Voice rightsholders.
