Voice Your Move! Philippines Influencing Grant

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

Everyday, people move. Being able to physically move facilitates a broad umbrella of economic, social and political freedoms that are taken for granted but affect our work towards sustainable and inclusive societies. Barriers to mobility and movement have been underscored by the COVID-19 pandemic. Rightsholder groups experience the travel bans, lockdowns, and restrictions imposed by the government differently. Although these are necessary to limit the spread of the disease, they impose additional barriers to the social inclusion of the rightsholder.

As freedom of movement is a human right, Voice invites civil society organisations to help shape local to national discussion on the mobility and movement of rightsholder groups.
