Call for Applications: Voice’s Innovate and Learn Grants Empowering the Voice of Marginalized People

Deadline: 30 March 2018

Voice is currently accepting applications for its Uganda Innovate and Learn Grants program to focus on organizations that want to learn from innovation and/or to test and scale new approaches with a focus on human-centered innovations that are context-specific and relevant to empowering, amplifying and/or influencing the voice of marginalized and discriminated people to participate fully in society.
