Donor Name: The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNDC)
Funding name: The UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Trafficking in Persons
Funding brief: This Call for Proposals takes into consideration the importance of harnessing all available resources towards the implementation of activities aimed at meeting the objectives of the UNVTF Small Grants Programme.
The main objectives of this Grants programme are:
● To provide essential assistance and protection to victims of trafficking in persons, in particular from the identification phase until their legal status has been resolved.
● To provide direct and effective access to essential services and remedies for victims of trafficking in persons, with an emphasis on assistance delivery by grassroots organizations, including, but not limited to, shelter, food, medical care, legal aid, access to justice, and psychosocial support.
Thematic focus and priority issues: Despite the call being global and open to assisting all victims of trafficking in persons, priority will be given to projects assisting victims coming out of a context of armed conflict and victims that have been identified among large movements of refugees and migration flows.
While this call will consider assistance to victims that have been trafficked for any purpose or type of exploitation, priority will be given to projects assisting victims trafficked for the purpose of sexual exploitation, organ removal, forced begging, forced criminality and any emerging exploitative purpose (e.g. skin removal, online pornography).
The following indicative activities will be given priority:
● Identification of victims of trafficking amongst migrants and refugees
● Access to legal advice and legal representation aimed at securing legal status in the host country for the victim;
● Essential advice on the victim’s rights and to claim access to remedies, including compensation or similar aid packages from national governments;
● Provision of shelter;
● Provision of psycho-social support;
● Provision of essential medical assistance;
● Assistance to obtain access to justice, legal advice and assistance including for victims to act as witnesses in court cases;
● Assistance with family reunification and repatriation, based on the full consent of the victim.
Deadline: The call will be open for 2 months, until 30 September 2017, at 24:00 CET.
Funding limit: Proposals with budgets ranging from minimum USD 20,000 to maximum USD 60,000 will be considered for award. Please note that value for money will be assessed as a part of the rating criteria.
