With the motive to increase access to education for refugee and displaced children and youth a call has been launched by Global Affairs Canada.
This call is part of the department’s campaign ‘Together for Learning’ – Education for refugee, other forcibly-displaced and host community children and youth, which aims to promote quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for refugee, internally displaced, and host community children and youth.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 14-Apr-21.
Objectives of the program:
This call is designed to increase access to education for refugee and displaced children and youth. Targeted capacity building, combined with small grants for core activities, locally driven education-related programming, and policy engagement, would amplify the voices of refugee and internally displaced people (IDPs) and those of organizations that represent them and are led by them. The call has 3 core objectives:
- Facilitate organizational capacity building among local RLO and/or IDP-led organizations working in the education sector to strengthen their empowerment and organizational effectiveness.
- Provide grants to local organizations, particularly RLO and/or IDP-led organizations, to strengthen gender-responsive education programming for refugee and internally displaced children and youth, particularly girls and adolescent girls, and ensure due diligence and monitoring of grants.
- Amplify the voices of local RLO and IDP-led organizations working in the education sector, including women-led organizations, through their collective action with key education stakeholders, governments, and host communities.
