IOM Procurement 

The Mission of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) – UN Migration Agency in the Kyrgyz Republic is seeking for partners to organize a camp for migrants!

Within the USAID Dignity and Rights project, IOM is seeking for partners among consulting companies, training teams, NGOs, and professionals to implement the project «A Migrant Camp».

For decades IOM has been saving, protecting and supporting migrants facing various challenges throughout their journeys to fulfill their migration strategies. In Kyrgyzstan there is already a pool of former migrants who received support from IOM upon return. With the help of IOM, many migrants could find justice if their rights had been violated, could improve their life situations and are potentially ready to engage in volunteerism to help other migrants who are in need of help. With this RFP, IOM plans to bring together all those migrants who have received support from IOM to voluntarily engage in human rights activism in spreading word about risks of irregular migration, human trafficking/smuggling, and advocating for facilitated migration by sharing their personal stories and exchanging experience. IOM believes that  only those who share common experiences and challenges can come together to stand up for their own rights.

Main goal of the camp: unite all migrants who have returned and faced similar challenges while abroad around the ideals of advocating for human rights, volunteerism, and principles of activism.

Main task of the camp: at least 2 participants of the camp become empowered with the ideas of volunteerism and will embark on human rights activism.

Partners willing to implement this project shall organize the camp following these principles:

Principle 1 – All trainers shall be bi-lingual: Kyrgyz and Russian (knowledge of Uzbek is an advantage). Note that many migrants are mainly Kyrgyz- or Uzbek-speakers, therefore training approaches, materials, and activities shall be geared towards Kyrgyz- and Uzbek-speaking audience. Service providers shall demonstrate their advanced knowledge of the Kyrgyz language;

Principle 2 – Materials and knowledge presented in easiest way possible. Due to different levels of education the training audience will have, the training materials shall be presented in an easy and uncomplicated manner so each and every training participants understand the topics of the camp;

Principle 3 – Psychological Support. Provide a Kyrgyz speaking psychologist experienced in conducting professional group psycho-therapies aimed at empowering camp participants, and the group therapies shall become an integral part of the training process, allowing the camp participants to open up about their former migration experiences, about their struggle to find justice and directing their emotions towards engaging in volunteerism;

Principle 4 – Training Format. The training shall NOT be arranged in a conference room/training room and shall be distinct from traditional classroom training formats. The training shall be organized in a form of a camp-out. Service providers shall propose a format of the camp-out such as “discussions in a yurt”, “stories around the fire”, etc.
