Self-Reliance Projects

Protracted displacement has become the norm in humanitarian crises, and despite years of humanitarian assistance, many IDPs remain vulnerable, unable to meet their basic needs, and leave the camp. The transition gap created between the humanitarian assistance phase and long-term reintegration needs to be closed using self-reliance as a bridge. This will improve their state of mind and enable them to earn a living, creating a path to leaving the camp and reintegrating into society with dignity.
