Project Description

Despite their official welcome, Venezuelan migrants in northern Ecuador often face daunting challenges when it comes to finding a decent job or fitting into their communities. At the IAF, we support community-led approaches to expanding economic opportunity and promoting social inclusion. Grantee partner Fundación de las Américas (FUDELA) is working with Venezuelan migrants and local Ecuadorians to provide training in small business development, job skills, and leadership. These activities will increase incomes for migrants and members of the communities receiving them alike. The grantee will also strengthen community and build leadership networks among local and migrant youth, promoting social acceptance and a more inclusive society. 

This grant is part of the IAF’s commitment to support displaced Venezuelans and communities impacted by the Venezuelan humanitarian crisis.
