The project «HOPE»

In 2022 the RCVC was selected to implement the project “HOPE” — Harnessing Opportunity for Peaceful Existence: Promoting Economic and Social Integration of Afghan Refugees in Tajikistan supported by Women`s Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF) in partnership with UN Women to promote socio-economic recovery, participation and leadership of Afghan women and young women in forced displacement in Tajikistan. With the support of the WPHF, UN Women and Project “HOPE” 1000 refugee women and girls are provided with opportunities to participate in various activities such as trainings on business start-ups and business expansion, trainings on rights of refugees and asylum seekers in Tajikistan, developing business plans and provision of vocational training courses, as well as apprenticeship with subsequent employment. The project also includes roundtables, market labor studies, awareness-raising campaigns on gender-based violence and information sessions aimed at prevention and elimination of GBV against vulnerable beneficiary groups.
