E-Democracy.org would be glad to be a strategic training partner - if
you really want to make "all" voices count, that is exactly our unique
niche with *inclusive* civic engagement online. Open government can go
beyond "open to all, used by few" to something used by the masses IF
there is a focus on local-up relevancy and active inclusive outreach.
It is easier said than done. Drop me a note: clift@e-democracy.org

Subject: [ogp-civilsociety] Making all Voices Count - Call for Proposals

Making All Voices Count: A Grand Challenge for Development is a global
initiative that aims to catalyse the globe to deepen existing
innovations and help harness new technologies to enable citizen
engagement and government responsiveness to improve government
performance. Making All Voices Count aims to fund collaborative
efforts rather than one-sided approaches.


Making All Voices Count is pleased to announce its first call for the
submission of proposals. This call for proposals will be open from
September 24 until November 8, 2013 at 18:00 o’clock South Africa time
(GMT +2). Selected grantees are expected to be announced by January
24, 2014.
More detailed information can be found on our website in the grant
manual, available through

Proposals will be assessed based on:
• The degree to which the proposed activities and objectives are in
line with the overall programme objectives of Making All Voices Count
• A demonstration that the activities will have a clear and direct
impact in one or more of the following countries: Ghana, Indonesia,
Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda
• The use of innovative approaches, including but not limited to
mobile, internet and web-based technology
• A clear demonstration of a partnership between at least two parties
(such as between civil society organization(s) and government)
• A results-based monitoring and evaluation approach and sound financial plan

Applications will only be considered if they are submitted via the
online grant application form by November 8, 2013 at 18:00 o’clock
South Africa time
(GMT +2).

We especially welcome applications that would address the disparities
faced by members of traditionally marginalized populations and persons
with disabilities and reflect approaches that directly incorporate
their participation.

If you have further queries regarding this call, or the submission
process, please email: grants@makingallvoicescount.org. Prospective
applicants may submit questions until November 1, 2013. All questions
and answers will be posted in anonymous form on the Making All Voices
Count website.

Making All Voices Count is implemented by a consortium consisting of
Hivos (lead organisation), the Institute of Development Studies (IDS)
and Ushahidi. Making All Voices Count is supported by USAID, DFID,
Omidyar Network, SIDA and Open Society Foundations.
