1) Objective

Voice is looking for projects and ideas to expand safe spaces for freedom of expression and freedom from violence to push for the inclusion of rightsholder groups in relation to the following thematic impact areas: (1) Improved access to (productive) resources (e.g. finance, land, and water) and employment; (2) Improved access to social services, in particular, healthcare and education; and (3) Space for political participation.

From the most recent Voice Indonesia Context Analysis, rightsholders have highlighted the following issues and opportunities to focus on:

  • Increase political participation of women, PWDs, the elderly, the youth, and indigenous communities in inclusive policy-making at the village level and advocating village budgeting that mainstreams rightsholders’ interests and needs;
  • Protection of Human Right Defenders from persecution, criminalisation, and risks of diseases, mental health, and death due to their activism;
  • Strengthening the network between the disability movement, women’s movement, and victim service providers to advocate for cases of violence against women with disability and to provide victims with inclusive and accessible services in accompaniment, recovery, and judicial processes;
  • Advocate for increasing job opportunities for Persons with disabilities through inter-stakeholder collaborations, supported by disability-friendly public and office facilities;
  • Strengthen participation of geographically excluded indigenous communities (in areas that are difficult to reach), in the most disadvantaged, frontier, and outermost areas, and those who experience language constraints in public policy, advocacy, and citizenship education.
