2018 Colombia Venezuela Ecuador - 0 views

  •  
    PRM seeks NGO proposals that primarily support Colombian refugees in Ecuador and Venezuela, and Colombian Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Colombia. These proposals should fill critical gaps in humanitarian assistance and local integration support for particularly vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees, including women, Afro-Colombians, and indigenous populations. Proposed activities should aim to improve beneficiaries' self-reliance and form alliances with public institutions to improve their capacity to provide basic services to persons of concern. Within each country, programs should focus on areas with significant populations of refugees and asylum seekers and weak institutional capacity, including in both rural and urban settings. Because of PRM's mandate to provide protection, assistance, and sustainable solutions for refugees and victims of conflict, PRM will consider funding only those projects that include a target beneficiary base of at least 50 percent refugees/IDPs/other populations of concern.
