Background and Justification
IOM Kenya in partnership with the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government and other key stakeholders such as National Coordination Mechanism on Migration (NCM) and Counter Trafficking Secretariat (CTiP) in Kenya is implementing Strengthening Capacity to respond to the needs of vulnerable migrants in Migrants Response Centres (MRCs) in East and Horn of Africa. The Project seeks to strengthen the IOM’s regional response to mixed migration flows in the Horn of Africa through strengthening the capacity of Migration Response Centres to identify, refer and provide direct assistance to vulnerable migrants. To improve data management on mixed migration in the region through research and capacity building.
In Kenya MRCs Referral Directory mapping will demonstrate increased capacity to identify, refer and provide direct assistance to migrants in vulnerable situations and provide a missing link in regards to ensuring IOM staff and government interlocutor in key sites are fully capacitated and empowered to provide and report on the services provided to the vulnerable migrants, and that the data collected is analyzed to support interventions.
Capacity building will support the government of Kenya to develop referral directory and Migration to enhance protection to vulnerable migrants in Eastleigh community and broadly in Nairobi County. The project is funded by IOM Migration Resource Allocation Committee (MiRAC) and based on a request from the Government of Kenya (GoK), through the Ministry of Health and Interior National Coordination, to provide technical and financial support to develop a referral directory. Having no referral directory for migrants in Kenya, the MiRAC project will build upon ad hoc referral in place, contextualizing and work on its components to reflect referral directory, urban migrants and migrants in Kenya, migration trends and stakeholders’ needs. Through consultations with the Ministry of Health, Department of Immigration and National Coordination Mechanism (NCM) and technical working group meetings, IOM will work closely with relevant stakeholders to develop the referral directory and Training of Trainers (ToT) on referral directory in such a way that ensures streamlining of government approach to respond to the needs of vulnerable migrants in Migrants centres. The referral directory will align with international instruments including the 1990 UN International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant and Members of their Families. To align with gender mainstreaming policies, the referral directory will incorporate gender considerations, considering gender components and addressing them to respond to the needs of both men and women vulnerable migrant. Key partners will include Ministry of Health, Department of Immigration Services, National Coordination Mechanism, Counter Trafficking Secretariat (CTiP), relevant CBOs and NGOs in Eastleigh, Nairobi
The objective of the consultancy is to map out comprehensive referral directory for migration protection, guide the review process of draft referral directory 2015 and to build upon ad hoc referral mechanism in place, contextualizing and updating its components to reflect current referral directory on migration trends and stakeholders’ needs.
