Funding brief: The cash prizes recognize and reward innovative work that fosters self-reliance for refugees and/or internally displaced people (IDPs) anywhere in the world – the hallmark of Ockenden International since its inception in 1951.
The Ockenden International Prizes remain focused on identifying solutions to the challenges faced by displaced people, raising awareness of their needs, and rewarding outstanding projects.
The Ockenden Prizes Ockenden seeks to support locally-based and/or refugee-led organizations that work directly with refugees and displaced people to advance self-reliance. Small-scale local organizations have the ability to be agile, well-targeted and highly cost-efficient. However, external funding can be hard to access, and is often tied to a particular project. Refugee experiences are varied and complex, so Ockenden seeks to allow prize-winners to direct the award according to their own priorities rather than ours. The prizes are unrestricted grants and will be awarded on the basis of initiatives that promote self-reliance among refugees and/or displaced people, with measureable evidence of outcomes that have led to real improvement in the lives of refugees or displaced people. Sound financial governance will also be a factor.
