This project seeks to strengthen the capacity of state and non-state actors to provide sustainable reintegration support to selected states in Nigeria. The overall objective of the action is to improve access to sustainable reintegration support to Nigerian migrants returning from the Central Mediterranean route, through socio-economic reintegration services, as well as mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS). The project targets the 1,700 most vulnerable returnees of those recently returned from Libya to Nigeria by the Government of Nigeria through chartered flights.
The proposed project will focus on capacity building and individual case management at the government-led transition centre in Gombe State, North-East Nigeria. Individuals participating in the rehabilitation programme commit to separate from the Boko Haram movement and ideology, get away from any kind of criminal activities, and return to the community and engage in exemplar civilian life. The 16-week programme focuses on spiritual and ideological counselling, de-radicalisation, psychosocial support, drug abuse prevention, sports, skills acquisition and vocational training.
The project aims to ensure that vulnerable populations affected by disease outbreak and conflict have safe equitable and adequate access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) services.
Through this project, IOM will contribute to ensuring an adequate humanitarian and recovery response to the needs of the internally displaced, host communities and returnees in North-Eastern Nigeria. In particular, IOM will seek to contribute to the improvement of protection and living conditions of displaced and conflict-affected populations in North-East Nigeria.
Through this project IOM will contribute to the improvement of living conditions and protection of IDPs and affected populations in Nigeria's North East states. With the support of OFDA, IOM aims at achieving the following results: 1. Provision of mental health and psychological support to individuals affected by on-going conflicts. 2. Effective sector co-leadership in the areas of Shelter/Non-food Items (ES/NFI) and Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) 3. Continuation and extension of DTM assessments, biometric registration and emergency tracking activities 4.
IOM will contribute to ensuring an adequate humanitarian response to the needs of IDPs, host communities and returnees in North Eastern Nigeria. The proposed action will expand the reach of life-saving activities that IOM is currently providing to IDPs in the North East of Nigeria.
IOM’s interventions will improve living conditions of IDPs living in Nigeria’s North East by responding to immediate and longer-term needs identified through community-level needs-assessments, including the Displacement Tracking Matrix. Interventions will focus on existing displacement situations and new areas that become accessible as they are liberated. Immediate relief support will include shelter and non-food items, displacement management, mental health and psychosocial support.
The proposed award modification request aims to strengthen the existing response to the humanitarian crisis that has developed in North Eastern Nigeria following the Boko Haram insurgency, as well as prepare for and respond to potential further man-made or natural disasters.
This project seeks to continue supporting the implementation of the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) program in Nigeria's north eastern states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe while addressing the needs of the most vulnerable Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and returnees identified through the DTM assessments. This project aims at strengthening the data collection system already in place in the states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe as well as to provide life-saving support to the most vulnerable IDPs and returnees identified through the DTM registration exercises.
This project will support the Nigerian Government to develop a policy on Health, AIDS and trafficking in persons, enhance understanding of health issues related to trafficking in persons in Nigeria, provide standard operating procedures for addressing the health needs of trafficked persons in Nigeria, and build the capacity of NAPTIP and relevant stakeholders to mainstream gender and human rights into the counseling and rehabilitation process of trafficked persons in the area of access to health.
