As an organization we majorly focus on the Five thematic areas of interventions within the Kakuma Refugee Camp: Education, Digital literacy, Entrepreneurship, Sexual & Reproductive Health (SRH) and Art
We are an organisation delivering value to communities. The education system in Kakuma is experiencing significant challenges, especially in the areas of psychosocial support for children, social and emotional learning, as well as overall teaching quality. That said, there exists the untapped potential for community organisations, both refugee and host, to be enfranchised and supported to play a role in children’s education. These community agents can provide services that complement the existing work done by INGOs and fill in their gaps – and if scaled, this will lead to a positive transformation of Kakuma’s education environment and will increase refugee agency.

What’s happening in Sudan? On the 15th April 2023, violence broke out in Sudan’s capital Khartoum between the country’s army and a paramilitary group called the Rapid Support Forces. The situation has continued to escalate and has spread across the country, including the Darfur region. Despite an agreement between the military players for a ceasefire, the fighting has reportedly continued. According to the World Health Organisation, more than 10,000 people have been killed in the conflict and 5.7 million have been displaced (ReliefWeb). 80 percent of these people are internally displaced, and the remaining 1 million have fled to the neighbouring countries of Chad, Ethiopia, and South Sudan, with some individuals travelling as far as Uganda. It is reported that violence is continuing to rage across the country. Furthermore, Sudan is home to over one million refugees from other countries, about 75% of whom are from South Sudan, mostly based in the Khartoum and White Nile states. According to ACAPS, 48% of the refugee population in Sudan are under 18. These communities are being directly affected by the violence. Refugee led response Refugee leaders and organisations are playing a critical role in supporting their communities as the situation continues to unfold across the country. These groups are particularly vulnerable and need our support urgently. We have partnered with a number of refugee-led organisations who are working on the ground to help people fleeing the violence, including I CAN SOUTH SUDAN, Sudanese Women for Peace and Development Association (SWPDA), Hope Relief and Rehabilitation for Disabilities Support (HRRDS) and GRTR Uganda. I CAN SOUTH SUDAN, an organisation based in South Sudan and Uganda, have been working in Gorom Refugee Camp on the outskirts of Juba. They have been providing clothes, food, water, shelter and other basic needs at reception centers which are being set up to receive new arrivals. They are developing a programme of activities and creating safe spaces for children within the camp. Beyond meeting people’s immediate needs, they will offering legal support and child protection services to those in need. HRRDS are supporting displaced people in the Nuba Mountains in Sudan, providing food items, blankets, tents & dignity kits for the women and young girls who have been displaced to that region. Your money will help these organisations provide safety and important supplies to those in need. Will you support them today?

Refugee children face a challenging start to life. The psychosocial impact of being forcibly displaced coupled with the inadequate opportunities for education negatively affects their childhood development experiences resulting in a deficient quality of life. The gross enrolment rate for refugee children in primary school stands at 68% leaving millions of children without an education. Eg, In Uganda, for instance, there are over 400,000 children out of school. Formal education systems in refugee-hosting countries cannot meet the educational needs of refugees by themselves. Refugee-led organizations are playing a vital role in closing the existing education gaps. Examples of refugee-led education initiatives include: reaching the most marginalized persons such as children with disabilities with tailored education support; After-school clubs for homework, extra-curricular, social, and emotional learning; Language classes for children who don’t understand the language of formal instruction; Supporting formal schools on issues of safety and child protection; Vocational education for youth who have dropped out of school and keeping education going during crises. This opportunity is hosted on reframe.network through a pooled fund, with Cohere acting as a fund manager to connect donors directly with the frontline responders, significantly reducing the administrative wastage associated with humanitarian funding. This is a rolling fund, with more funding coming in at any time. Eligible RLOs will each receive a £5000(Equivalent to 22,725,000 Uganda Shillings; 730,000 Kenyan Shillings) grant to implement their respective projects in a timeframe of 6 months to 12 months.

Climate change is disproportionately affecting refugee-hosting areas of Africa with 82% of refugees residing in climate-change hotspots. Access to natural resources is vital to provide refugees with income, food and water security yet climate change is reducing the availability and increasing competition for such resources. Meanwhile refugees already face multiple socio-economic and political barriers to realising sustainable livelihoods, good nutrition, adequate health care and opportunities for quality education and mobility. As such, refugees and hosting communities are more exposed and sensitive to the impacts of climate change on their health and livelihoods and less able to absorb and adapt to the increasing frequency of extreme weather events. Nevertheless, multiple known refugee-led organisations are taking actions to build the ability of their communities to build resilience and sustain and develop prosperity under such constraints. Through the pooled fund, the fund manager, Cohere is able to most closely connect donors with the cause they are supporting, significantly reducing the administrative wastage associated with humanitarian funding.

Supporting Refugee Participation & Advocacy
Introduction In Cohere’s 2022 report that highlights five barriers to meaningful refugee participation, we were able to identify how refugee leaders and refugee-led organisations (RLOs) have continued to be excluded from decision-making spaces. Through the report we made our recommendations on how Cohere and the sector can do better to ensure refugees are participating in all levels of programme development and leadership across the humanitarian sector. Refugees should have a seat at the table, especially when this is where decisions about their futures are being made. Read the report here: https://bit.ly/3ZLseBi And the Executive Summary here: https://bit.ly/3yzV37W Outcomes We would like to convert our learnings into action with the aim to fundraise for specific support for refugee-led organisations that will increase participation, improve access to advocacy opportunities and expand networks. These are essential activities to support the growing profile of refugee leaders and refugee-led organsations/networks. Financial target: $30,000These will include:- Refugee leaders representation at Global Refugee Forum, Geneva (Switzerland) - Dec. 2023- Refugee-led networking events- Fund for refugees who need sponsorship to attend high-level advocacy events- Community of Practice - refugee (exclusively) participation within the group Specific indicators of success: - Number of refugee leaders/organisations attending national or international foras, and participating in decision-making processes. - RLOs/networks strengthened - measured through increased attendance, levels of member participation- Launch and progress of the Community of Progress PartnershipsWe will partner with a number of existing refugee-led organisations and/or networks who are focusing on advocacy, improved representation and have developed refugee networks. These partners will be invited to submit an Expression of Interest and be partners and beneficiaries of the pooled-fund. These partners will share in the promotion and fundraising objectives of the fund. What is a pooled-fund? On Reframe, pooled-funds have been created to support refugee-led response to emergencies or thematic areas of work e.g Ebola Outbreak in Uganda, Education in Emergencies. The pooled-fund on Reframe gives donors the opportunity to learn about the response and donate to a group of RLOs who are involved. The donor can find out information about the project and donate through the page. Cohere receives these donates and distributes the funds to the different partner organisations. Cohere takes a small percentage of the donation to facilitate this transfer.

Livelihoods and Technology
Gaining employment as a refugee in East Africa is harder than for a national. Refugees face discrimination both in entering the job market and in the monthly salary they receive once entering the job market. Barriers to refugee livelihoods lead to extreme poverty and long term negative life outcomes. The levels of poverty faced by households in Kakuma in northern Kenya can be illustrated in the behaviour of 43% of families who employ immediately harmful coping mechanisms such as spending entire days without eating. However, there are opportunities for refugees to engage in and contribute to local and international economic growth. With the right skills, investments and networks, refugees are playing a key role in local value chains such as retail, services, manufacturing and agriculture. With improving connectivity and market linkages refugees all over the world are engaging in remote work and generating income on-line. The pooled fund is designed to be efficient and to maximize the amount of donor funding that reaches communities affected by displacement. Cohere partners with enterprising RLOs supporting the livelihoods of their community members in the most cost-efficient manner. Through the pooled fund, Cohere as the fund manager is able to most closely connect donors with the cause they are supporting, significantly reducing the administrative wastage associated with humanitarian funding.
