Summary

Humanity is going through one of the toughest crises in history. Vulnerable communities, such as Venezuelan refugees, have been financially affected by COVID19. Through our POETA Program, we seek to empower Venezuelan refugees in Latin America by providing digital, entrepreneurial and technical skills training to access employment or start small businesses. As well as fostering the creation of support networks to access local resources to improve the integration in receiving communities.

Challenge

The UN forecasts a total of 6.5 million displaced Venezuelans by the end of 2020. Venezuelan migrants and refugees tend to be easy targets of violence, human trafficking, discrimination, and human rights violations. Therefore, making them one of the most vulnerable groups in the Americas. Their highest priority is finding formal sector economic opportunities for families to be safe, have shelter, food, and financial independence.

Solution

With your help, we will provide essential life and employability skills for 50 refugees to access economic opportunities such as obtaining a job or creating a business; thus, achieving the so needed financial self-sufficiency. Furthermore, the POETA Program generates understanding and collaboration between Venezuelan refugees and receiving communities through inclusive and safe spaces, human rights, and the prevention of xenophobia workshops.

Long-Term Impact

After three years of implementation, 50 Venezuelan refugees will be integrated into host communities as economically independent individuals contributing to economic prosperity in their communities. Many migrants and underserved people will have upgraded their skills, thus making them stronger individuals to pursue a career, begin and strengthen their entrepreneurship.
