PADF implemented a one-year program funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau for Populations, Refugees and Migration (PRM) to provide protection and promote integration for Venezuelan asylum seekers and persons in needs of international protection in Peru. Activities were designed to increase access to protection mechanisms, combat and prevent gender-based violence and trafficking in persons and enhance integration of Venezuelan migrants and other vulnerable populations.
Three notable outcomes of this project were a socio-economic profile of the Venezuelan population in Peru, an assessment on the psychosocial risks faced by Venezuelan victims of gender-based violence, trafficking in persons and sexual exploitation, and an international forum on the protection of the rights of refuges and migrants in Peru and Colombia. To enhance coordination with other stakeholders, PADF actively participated in coordination meetings of the Refugee and Migration Working Group led by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
The Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) is the humanitarian bureau of the United States Department of State. PRM promotes U.S. interests by providing protection, easing suffering, and resolving the plight of persecuted and forcibly displaced people around the world. PRM coordinates humanitarian policy and diplomacy, provides life-sustaining assistance, works with multilateral organizations to build global partnerships, and promotes best practices in humanitarian response.
