Through this Sudden Opportunity grant, Voice in Uganda is calling on Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to undertake a collective action to address specific anticipated threats to marginalised and discriminated groups such as women at risk of exploitation, abuse and/or violence, youth, the elderly, indigenous minority groups and/ or people living with disabilities in one or more of the Voice impact themes. It is an opportunity for strategic advocacy, mobilisation of CSOs and/collective action that can lead to change in policies/laws, legal decisions, or a shift in public attitudes and practices to challenge discrimination, promote equal access and opportunities, enhance social well-being, confront injustice and/or encourage social development. This grant is available from €5,000 to €200,000 for an intervention that will last between 6 and 12 months. Possible interventions would require using nonviolent action, with active participation of human rights defenders, private institutions and companies, faith leaders, NGOs and self-interested individuals or intellectuals who jointly and collectively seek the promotion and protection of civil and political rights as well as the realisation of economic, social and cultural rights of the Voice target groups.
