    Voice Roving Monitoring & Evaluation Officer Africa

    About Voice

    Voice is an innovative grant facility to support rights holders and groups facing marginalisation or discrimination in their efforts to exert influence in accessing productive and social services and political participation. Voice operates in a context where civic space and power is shifting at a fast pace, and often closing rather than opening. Where the narrative is negative and underlining marginalisation and vulnerability, rather than the dreams and successful steps made towards a better, more inclusive world. Voice is implemented in ten countries in Africa and Asia: Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia and the Philippines
