Strengthening the capacities of Community-Based Organisations serving migrants in Egypt


Direction du Développement de la Coopération (Suisse)

Titre : Strengthening the capacities of Community-Based Organisations serving migrants in Egypt

Pays/Région : Egypte

Durée : 01.12.2021 - // 30.11.2024

In Egypt, Community Based Organisations (CBOs) are key actors in responding to migrants and forcibly displaced persons’ basic needs especially amid COVID 19 pandemic. Building on lessons learnt from the first phase, CBOs will be further empowered to become more financially sustainable in order to continue providing quality services and advocate for migrants and forcibly displaced persons’ needs and rights in the donor community and with decision makers.

Projet en bref
* Contexte : - As of February 2021, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) had registered 260,287 refugees (80% in Greater Cairo) of 58 nationalities, a number estimated to represent a fraction of reality. - In this mixed migration context, protection, basic needs and livelihood gaps are poorly addressed at the national and local levels. - Migrants and forcibly displaced persons face many challenges related to basic needs (i.e. housing, health care, and education), protection (psychosocial and legal support) and livelihood opportunities. - The services which CBOs provide include education, emergency assistance, and support referral services related to financial, medical, psychosocial and legal support. The CBOs are the main services providers during COVID 19 and have the greatest knowledge of community needs, amount of community trust and accessibility, and culturally and linguistically competent staff.
* Objectifs  : To foster and ensure the protection, resilience and rights of migrants and forcibly displaced persons by enhancing their access to sustainable quality services and community-based protection, through developing the capacity of 30 Community Based Organizations across Cairo.
* Groupes cibles  : The project will directly target the following : Directly : 50,000 direct beneficiaries (50% women) migrants and forcibly displaced persons from quality services through the 15 CBOs. 15 CBOs from first phase for further institutional and technical capacity building, mentoring and 1:1 coaching. 15 new CBOs to benefit from mentoring by more experienced CBOs and to be members of the CBOs advocacy network. 240 CBO staff (50% women) for capacity building. Indirectly : 125,000 indirect beneficiaries - including direct family members (average family size : 5) Geographical scope : Greater Cairo

Partenaires  : - Bureau for Population, Refugees and Migration in the United States Department of State (BPRM) - Larsen Lam Iconic Impact Award - Regional Development and Protection Program Italy (RDPP) - Small Charities Challenge Fund UK (SCCF)

Budget de la Suisse  : CHF 1’418’000 (Phase en cours)
