(a) Proposed activities should primarily support refugees and/or displaced persons in Georgia and Armenia.
Because of PRM's mandate to provide protection, assistance, and sustainable solutions for refugees and victims of conflict, PRM will consider funding only those projects that include
a target beneficiary base of at least 50 percent refugees/IDPs/returnees.
(b) Proposals must focus on one or more of the following areas (see PRM's General NGO Guidelines for sector descriptions):
PRM will consider proposals that include, for example, targeted grassroots legal assistance and counseling; community mobilization; other integration assistance; and information dissemination about available services.
Proposals can also include projects that complement governments' efforts to create durable housing solutions and cultural orientation programs for vulnerable populations.
PRM will consider proposals that include, for example, vocational skills training; job-placement assistance; and promote self-sufficiency through employment.
All proposed livelihood activities must be grounded in solid market and livelihoods assessments.
Proposals should include detailed information about how the proposed activities would complement government and UN initiatives and/or plans.
(iii) Gender-based Violence:
PRM will consider comprehensive gender-based violence proposals, including, for example, interventions that focus on core service provision, prevention or behavior change, and empowerment activities for women and girls.
Proposals may also include activities that aim to promote, use, or build capacity around the 2015 Inter-Agency Standing Committee Gender-based Violence (GBV) Guidelines for Gender-based Violence Interventions for Humanitarian Settings.
(iv) Confidence Building (for Georgia only):
PRM will consider projects seeking to support confidence building across communities divided by conflict.
Projects can include information campaigns to facilitate conflict mitigation and awareness of government programs and policies intended for displaced persons; these include, for example, policies related to youth, women and girls, first mother-tongue language training, health, and other assistance-related reforms.
Proposals relating to healthcare must identify and target a gap in healthcare for displaced/conflict affected populations.
Projects should strive to serve as models or pilot projects to stimulate mainstreaming of assistance for displaced persons.
Because of the deterioration of the conditions in Gali, we are interested in projects that would help these conflict-affected communities and our persons-of-concern, particularly youth.
