Local level initiatives


The Project aims to raise the capacity of Local NGOs in Upper Egypt to implement sustainable development projects.
The project aimed to directly support migrants to meet their migration-related objectives, specifically related to the accumulation of savings and investment capital. This included facilitation of networking between communities in countries of origin, migrant communities in host countries, and financial intermediaries. It also aimed at maximizing the development aspect of migration, and improve migrant capacities in financial, social, and human capital. This was achieved through improving investment returns, encouraging entrepreneurship, and creating employment in Moldova.
1. Improved quality of financial services for migrants in terms of innovation, costs, performance, impact and accessibility; 2. Strengthened methods of support for investments and for business creation; 3. Consolidated tools for communication, partnership and information exchange around migrant projects.
The main objective was to reinforce the multi-actor dialogue and practices on the migration-development nexus between North and South and to build a pool of common, independent knowledge on migration and development related issues.

The project developed a social network linking migrants in Spain and their families in Ecuador, focusing on organic coffee production and the financial mechanisms that sustain it.
This project encouraged entrepreneurship and enhanced entrepreneurship skills by promoting business and management training for people in the city of Kutaisi and in the Georgian diaspora and by supporting Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Kutaisi.
This project aimed to fill the information gap that prevents potential irregular migrants from making an informed decision on whether to embark on the migration process, based on a sound knowledge and understanding of potential threats to, and exploitation of, the migrant - both in transit and in destination countries. The intention was not to actively dissuade migration but to provide objective information without prejudice.
This Project mobilized migrant organizations and hometown associations in (1) maximizing the development potential of migration whilst (2) minimizing its social cost on migrants and the families left behind.
The project identified evidence on the mental health issues and concerns of Filipino women migrant workers, thereby generating rights- and gender-based interventions at the Philippine governmental level to improve the general conditions of women migrant workers and prevent discrimination, abuse and violation of migrants' human rights in all phases of the migration cycle.
