Funding brief: Ockenden International has launched its seventh annual quest to find and reward the most effective self-reliance projects for refugees and/or internally displaced people.
The cash prizes recognize and reward innovative work that promotes self-reliance among refugees and/or internally displaced people (IDPs) anywhere in the world – a distinguishing feature of Ockenden International since its inception in 1951.
Prizes will be awarded to projects that promote self-reliance among refugees and/or displaced people. ‘Self-reliance’ is understood broadly and may include projects for education, legal assistance, livelihoods or any other programmes that help displaced people build stable, independent lives.
The entries will be judged by a panel of experts who will be looking for highly effective projects that have led to real change in people’s lives, with measurable evidence of outcomes, as detailed in the Judging Criteria.
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.
