Two Nigerian NGO bag $25k U.S refugee fund award

Two Nigerian organisations - Centre for Caring, Empowerment and Peace Initiative, CCEPI, and Initiatives for the Empowerment of Vulnerable Persons in the Society, have received the funds in response to the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, PRM, call for program recommendations for the 2018 Julia Taft Refugee Fund.

The announcement was made by the U.S. Mission to Nigeria which said the award is valued at $25,000 in grants to support two local organizations.

The fund is to address important gaps in refugee protection and assistance, gaps not addressed by larger multilateral refugee programs.

According to a statement by U.S. Embassy in Abuja, the two projects to be funded through this program will work with some of the most vulnerable populations in Nigeria - internally displace persons (IDPs) and returnees, including orphans, young widows and indigent persons whose livelihood has been destroyed as a result of insecurity in Northeast Nigeria, helping them to become economically self-sufficient.
