This one year project will address the needs of urban refugees and vulnerable host community members to improve their economic wellbeing and address issues which limit the integration of refugees within host communities. The focus of the project will be on addressing the interrelated gaps that hinder effective service delivery and local integration in the target communities. The overall goal of the program will be to strengthen social cohesion and livelihoods in refugee-hosting divisions in Kampala. This will be achieved through three interrelated outcomes:
• Refugees and host communities participate collectively toward a shared vision of sustainable peace and common development goals. Activities under this outcome will focus on building linkages between refugee leaders and local authorities, as well as fostering connections between youth, women and men in refugee and host-communities.
• Financial Inclusion is enhanced for refugees and host communities in the divisions of Kampala. Activities under this outcome will focus on building financial inclusion and building the capacity of micro-entrepreneurs to further develop and increase their income potential - improvements in understanding of legal regulations and taxation laws, access to microfinance, and interventions which enable businesses to address some of the constraints (such as lack of capacity to innovate in their products due to limited time and capital available to invest in experimenting new products or services, lack of ability to aggregate demand with other small businesses) have potential to create important impacts in terms of income for those concerned.
• Micro entrepreneurs are supported to develop their businesses to increase income and improve food security. Activities under this outcome will focus on building technical skills for existing and future entrepreneurs, supporting product innovation in businesses which can build ties between host and refugee communities and social impact in communities, and enabling development of urban farming both to increase access to nutritious food at lower costs and also as an income stream.
