Winrock International Call for EOIs: Mobilizing Civil Society to Strengthen Sub-National Counter Human Trafficking Initiatives in Nepal
Deadline: 13 June 2019
Winrock International, through the USAID Hamro Samman Project, seeks to partner with Nepali counter-trafficking organizations to strengthen counter-trafficking initiatives at the provincial and local government level.
Through this grant pool, the Hamro Samman Project aims to empower sub-national CSOs to engage in more effective advocacy on priority CTIP issues, and to position the CSO partner to provide quality technical support to the government at the provincial, district and local level to enable it to understand its obligations; establish mechanisms to coordinate and implement a referral system for more effective service delivery to at-risk populations; to collect, analyze and share quality data about human trafficking, migration and related services; to develop survivorcentered and human-rights based laws, policies and guidelines through public consultation; and to prioritize CTIP actions and activities in its annual budget. This will help to improve service delivery to at-risk populations.
The Hamro Samman Project is a five-year project generously supported by the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Winrock International. Its goal is to reduce the prevalence of trafficking in persons in 10 strategically selected districts of Nepal. Using the ‘4Ps’ framework- Prevention, Protection, Prosecution and Partnership, the Hamro Samman project will bring together various stakeholders and implementing partners to reduce the prevalence of trafficking in persons through three objectives:
- Objective 1: Strengthening federal, provincial and local Government of Nepal (GON) efforts to combat TIP;
- Objective 2: Improving Civil Society Organization (CSO) advocacy and engagement to address TIP; and
- Objective 3: Increasing private sector partnerships (PSPs) to service TIP survivors and at-risk populations.
The total grant pool is initially approximately NPR 42 million (approximately $385,000) for a total of 18 months.
This EOI is open to all Nepali civil society organizations, networks, membership-based organizations and federations that have extensive work experience (at least 3 years) in counter trafficking in persons (CTIP) or safe migration issues.
