Venezuelan migrants face challenges in adapting to life in Argentina, accessing services, exercising their rights, and finding gainful employment. Many suffer from psychosocial issues from the traumas they experienced in Venezuela and their journey to Argentina. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to creating economic opportunity and promoting social inclusion for Venezuelan migrants. Asociación Civil Alianza por Venezuela (AV) provides training and technical assistance in employment and entrepreneurship, promotes social integration, and facilitates access to education, health, and psychosocial services. It will also strengthen AV, an organization established by Venezuelan migrants that seeks to address their longer-term needs.
This is part of the IAF’s regional initiative to respond to the effects of the Venezuelan crisis in Latin America and the Caribbean.
