Actions for Migrants: Route-based Assistance

A programme implemented by the British Red Cross (BRC) in collaboration with Partner National Societies (PNSs) and Host National Societies (HNSs) along major western, northern, and eastern African migratory routes.

The IFRC provided technical and project management support to the IFRC Sahel Country Cluster Support Team (see also: cluster) as part of a larger RCRC collaboration on the AMiRA project funded by DFID.

IFRC’s regional component of the AMiRA programme is “Ensuring access to basic services for all migrants, irrespective of their status”, including the establishment of Humanitarian Service Points (HSP) along migratory trails in Senegal, Niger, Burkina Faso, and Mali. These support the work of National Societies and offer an effective way to provide vulnerable migrants with access to basic services, information, support and protection.

In collaboration with GTS[1], BRC and IFRC developed the guideline and toolkit How to Establish and Manage a Systematic Community Feedback Mechanism[2], thus complementing the RCRC Guide to Community Engagement and Accountability (CEA) and the Monitoring and Evaluation Guide (M&E, see: PMER).
