Winrock International, through the USAID-funded Safe Migration in Central Asia project, calls on prospective organizations interested in supporting one or more of the following objectives in the Kyrgyz Republic:
Raise awareness of at-risk populations on safe migration, with a focus on specific target audiences (youth, women, migrants’ children, rural residents, orphans etc.). Proven modern and innovative channels of communications will help develop behavior change and reduce the number of people exposed to illegal labor migration and human trafficking.
Provide capacity building of civilian state institutions, including central and regional offices and civil society organizations which are involved in implementing the National Referral Mechanism (in accordance with Decree of the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic #493 dated September 19, 2019), on the newly adopted SOPs and guidelines on victim identification and referrals. Interactive techniques and cost-effective methods will be used in such activities.
Advocate for and assist in the improvement of a regulatory framework and policies to promote safe migration and counter trafficking in persons, as well as in the development of sustained services for migrants and at-risk population.
