The project aims to help ensure that Venezuelan migrant children and adolescents, particularly girls and adolescent girls, live free from violence and discrimination, and exercise their rights to protection, education and health in strengthened host communities in Peru. The project works with the Peruvian ministries of Education, of Health, and of Women and Vulnerable Populations, as well as with civil society organizations to promote gender-sensitive and inclusive education, and health and protection services. The project advocates for, and assists in updating regulatory frameworks and other instruments to grant migrants access to services. It seeks to empower adolescent girls to make them aware of their rights, and foster egalitarian relations between girls and boys. The project works to generate gender-disaggregated data and rapid assessments to determine the immediate needs and priorities of Venezuelan children and adolescents. It targets two regions of Peru: northern Lima, where most of the settled Venezuelan population is concentrated; and, to a lesser extent Tumbes, the main entry point for Venezuelans coming to Peru. It aims to benefit 25,000 Venezuelan children and adolescents, including 19,000 enrolled in schools. Additionally, the project aims to benefit 150,000 Venezuelan and Peruvians in host communities reached by messages aimed at preventing violence and discrimination.
