Voice beyond the Incident is an innovative grant facility that supports the most marginalised and discriminated people in high, upper, middle and low-income countries in Africa and Asia.
The aim is to amplify and connect unheard voices by unveiling hidden talents in a bid to leave no one behind.
Beyond the Voice is committed to providing safe spaces filled with integrity and respect for all people as well as for financial resources. This group is being implemented in 10 Countries including Nigeria. Currently, Nigeria is focusing on Abuja, Lagos and Enugu States.
Applications are therefore open for Nigerians. This gift is meant for collective action to address specific, unanticipated situations that in most cases would threaten civic space or invade the basic human rights of the people.
