U.S. Department of State, Bureau of PRM: 2018 NGO Projects Benefiting Urban Refugees in South Africa

Deadline: 12 April 2018

The United States Department of State Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) is seeking concept notes from eligible organisations for its 2018 NGO Projects Benefiting urban refugees in South Africa.

Programs should build capacity of national organizations and within communities to address refugee and asylum seeker needs and promote self-reliance.

Focus Sectors

  • Protection: Proposal should bear in mind existing refugee protection mechanisms including formal laws and policies designed to protect refugees and asylum seekers as well as informal community-based protection efforts. Proposals should be designed to support and strengthen existing protection mechanisms rather than develop parallel systems that may not be sustainable over time. Key components of protection programs may include:
    • legal assistance and counseling,
    • community-based prevention and response to xenophobia,
    • prevention and response to gender-based violence,
    • child protection, and/ or
    • dissemination of information to promote enhanced refugee access to protection mechanisms and programs.
  • Health, Education, and/or Shelter: Proposals should focus on increasing refugee and asylum seeker access to existing government- and community-based social services rather than developing parallel services, with a focus on health care (including mental health care and sexual and reproductive health services), education and vocational training, and/ or housing and shelter. Proposals should enhance local capacity to address refugee and asylum seeker needs and may include support to host communities who are assisting and protecting refugees and asylum seekers provided at least 50 percent of the beneficiaries are refugees and asylum seekers.
  • Livelihoods: Proposals should be based on market assessments and should be designed to foster self-reliance among refugees and asylum seekers in urban areas. Components may include: training in language, literacy and vocational skills linked to local markets, job-placement, and/ or legal support for businesses. Proposals should include plans to measure the impact of proposed activities on achieving self-reliance, or in the case of continuation applications, describe the impacts of previous livelihoods activities and include indicators of self-reliance. Programs may include host-community beneficiaries provided that at least 50 percent of the beneficiaries are refugees and asylum seekers.
