Oxfam is an international confederation of 19 organizations networked together in 97 countries. As part of a global movement for change, Oxfam is working with thousands of partners around the world to end world poverty and injustice. Oxfam works directly with communities and at the policy level to enable the most marginalized to improve their lives and livelihoods and have a say in decisions that affect them. Contracted directly by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Oxfam with Hivos are implementing Voice to help unleash thus far unheard voices.

Voice* is an innovative grant facility that supports the most marginalised and discriminated rightsholder groups in their efforts to exert influence in accessing productive and social services and political participation. Voice works with the following five rightsholder groups, prioritising those rightsholders that may face double or overlapping vulnerabilities. 1). People with disabilities; 2) Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people; 3) Women facing exploitation, abuse and/or violence; 4) Vulnerable youth and elderly/senior citizens; 5) Indigenous groups and ethnic minorities.

These groups are often the hardest to reach. For more information please visit www.voice.global
