NGO Projects for Afghan Refugees and Returnees: The following guidelines are issued specifically for proposals for projects designed to benefit Afghans.OVERVIEW: PRM is soliciting proposals from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for humanitarian projects benefiting Afghan refugees and returnees. Proposals must be received by PRM no later than April 14, 2006. Proposals received after this date will not be considered. BACKGROUND: PRMs central mandate is to provide assistance to refugees and returnees. As in past years, PRM generally supports activities in the areas of: shelter rehabilitation and repair; water and sanitation systems rehabilitation and repair; basic and maternal/child healthcare; supplemental feeding and nutritional programs; primary education, including school construction or rehabilitation, teacher training, provision of materials and equipment; and sustainable livelihoods.PROPOSAL FOCUS AND GUIDANCE: PRM is interested in innovative NGO proposals addressing the long-term needs of Afghan refugees and returnees as well as their host communities. Within the general areas noted above, PRM is particularly interested in projects that (1) include clear and effective plans for moving from relief to reconstruction; (2) anchor returnees in Afghanistan and enable communities to support those who have returned home and build capacity to absorb additional returnees; (3) have a cross-border component, where refugees identified in countries of asylum are assisted in returning to Afghanistan; (4) find creative and efficient means of providing continued access to essential services such as healthcare and education in countries of asylum; (5) explicitly address the needs of women and girls, and (6) build capacity within governments, local institutions, and host communities.NGOs are encouraged to propose programs that include a mix of elements. PRM will consider a broad range of NGO activities, but priority will be given to programs that include one or more of the elements from the above categories. It is important to have an effective and practicable exit strategy as it is unlikely that follow-on funding will be available.
