Limited funding is available to support NGOs working with UNHCR in South Sudan in support of refugees and refugee returnees:
For refugees from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Central African Republic, activities should support refugees in Makpandu, Lasu, and Napere (Ezo) settlements, South Sudan. Proposals should specify refugee population numbers and/or projects in proposed locations. Priority sectors include WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene), health (including reproductive health) and nutrition, livelihoods (crop-production), primary education, psychosocial support, and protection including prevention and response to GBV and HIV/AIDS. Target beneficiaries, sectors, and proposed programs should be developed in full coordination with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
For Sudanese Refugees, Activities should support Sudanese refugees, who have fled to South Sudan since June 2011, in current or planned settlements located in South Sudan and in coordination with UNHCR. Proposals should specify refugee population numbers and projects in proposed locations. Proposals addressing protection and assistance for settlement -based refugees should focus on core protection (including prevention of and response to gender-based violence, prevention of recruitment, and assistance to unaccompanied minors), health and nutrition (including support and accessibility for pregnant women, and disabled and elderly persons), WASH, community services, and/or psychosocial support. Target beneficiaries, sectors, and proposed programs should be developed in full coordination with UNHCR.
For Refugee Returnee Reintegration, proposed activities should support the return and reintegration of South Sudanese refugees via programs in refugee returnee communities in South Sudan. Proposals should comment on the point of refuge (i.e., refugee camps in Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, or elsewhere) of targeted returnee beneficiaries and should address the needs of those who have returned since 2009. Priority will be given to Eastern Equatoria, Upper Nile, and Jonglei States, given the provenance of the remaining Sudanese refugees. Proposals must focus on activities from among the following sectors: Health, Primary Education, and Gender-Based Violence (GBV) Prevention and Assistance.
Priority will be given to proposals from organizations that can demonstrate: a working relationship with UNHCR and UNHCR funding and/or support for the proposed activities and/or overall country program; a proven track record in providing proposed assistance (both in the sector and specified location); evidence of coordination with international organizations (IOs) and other NGOs working in the same area or sector, development organizations, and local authorities; a concrete implementation plan with well-conceived objectives and indicators; a budget that is appropriate for meeting the objectives and demonstrates co-funding by non-US government sources; appropriate targeting of beneficiaries in coordination with UNHCR and other relevant organizations; and adherence to relevant international standards for humanitarian assistance.
