Project Short Intro: Alimentary and Non-Alimentary Actions for Venezuelan Migrants in Brazil (ANA) is an activity aligned with the strategy of the Brazilian Government and the international community for alleviating the plight of Venezuelan migrants in Brazil.
ANA provides emergency assistance under the Shelter and Settlements, WASH, and Food Security sectors bringing assistance to 30,000 of the most vulnerable Venezuelan migrants living along the migratory corridor of Brazil’s Roraima State, including the capital city Boa Vista, as well as the city of Manaus in neighboring Amazonas, which hosts a large population of migrants.
The project will run for sixteen (16) months from October 1st, 2020, to January 31st, 2022, and its scope of activities will include:
(1) Shelter and Settlements Non-Food Items (NFIs),
(2) Hygiene Promotion,
(3) WASH Non-Food Items,
(4) Electronic vouchers and
(5) Pamphlets to promote good nutrition and culinary hygiene.
This evaluation would have three main purposes:
1. To learn to what extent the project’s objectives and goals—at all result levels—have been achieved;
2. To assess the extent to which the different outcomes/benefits arising from the project are likely to continue after activities have been completed; and
3. To evaluate effectiveness and relevance of the food baskets and NFIs to achieve the project outcomes.
