Author: GFRAS NWG , 2022

The “Secure Livelihoods for South Sudanese Refugees and Host Communities in West Nile region, Uganda”, also referred to as the Migration Project, is implemented in Uganda with settlements with the largest number of refugees -Rhino Camp (Arua district) and Bidi (Yumbe district), by two local NGOs -Agency for Accelerated Rural Development (AFARD) and PALM Corps- in partnership with Horizont3000.

The intervention targeted both the host community and refugees and aimed to bridge the gap between rehabilitation and development by mitigating the effects of relief aid on thedevelopment process of West Nile Region. The expected results were 1) improved nutrition status of 750 targeted households (60% female headed) in refugees and host communities, 2) profitable sustainable agriculture practiced by 750 households (67% female headed) in refugees and host communities. The expected outcome is that refugees and host communities have secure livelihoods and contribute to sustainable development within the resettlement areas.
