We support people’s participation in democracy and development through three main programme areas: Participatory Governance and Gender, Commonwealth Writers, and Grants. Take a look at our projects and filter by governance areas, issues, project type, or location.

Governance Areas

Influencing public discourse

Through a range of communication channels, public discourse can influence public debate and form public opinion, which has the potential to demand accountability and influence political decision-making. The Foundation supports work that enhances civic voices to tell stories and build narratives and awareness campaigns around voices and issues that are less-heard and marginalised.
