Awards and supporters
We are deeply grateful for the following grants and awards
The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation has been making grants since 1967 to help solve social and environmental problems around the world. In November 2015, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation awarded a three-year grant to Africa’s Voices to establish ourselves in East Africa, to assist additional service providers and decision-makers to incorporate citizen feedback, and to iterate, learn, and share findings as we pilot our approach.
“Africa’s Voices reaches voices of ordinary people and ensures they can be heard in a skillful way. It enables people to contribute to decisions that affect their lives.”
– Lord Cairns, a foundational funder of Africa’s Voices and current chairperson.
The David and Elaine Potter Foundation is a charitable grant-giving foundation established in 1999 to encourage a stronger and fairer society. The Foundation awarded grants to Africa’s Voices in 2015 and 2016.
The Centre of Governance and Human Rights was awarded funding from the University of Cambridge Vice-Chancellor’s Discretionary Fund, to support Africa’s Voices spin-out into a social enterprise.
“Africa’s Voices helps to amplify the voices of hard-to-reach communities and is proof positive of research as a force for good,”
– Dame Dianne Thompson, after awarding Africa’s Voices the Market Research Society’s President’s Medal 2016.
