About the Project

About ORAM

 

ORAM protects and empowers exceptionally vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees globally, creating sustainability and systemic change. We assist vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees on every step of their journey, working along displacement routes and in transit countries. We connect individuals with the resources and opportunities they need to build safe, stable and empowered lives.  

 

About the Project

 

Vulnerable and marginalized groups often live on the edge of society, in isolation, and are therefore often unable to access available services. ORAM will be conducting an in-depth needs assessment in order understand the unique challenges and needs vulnerable and marginalized asylum seekers and refugees face in the refugee settlements in Uganda. A gap analysis of existing services will be conducted to understand what support is available to vulnerable individuals and what support is still needed. The information from the needs assessment will provide the basis for a series inclusion training session, which will be provided to service providers and duty bearers in the settlements, providing them with the tools to ensure their programmes meet the needs of everyone they serve.
