- 61 individuals provided with gender-based violence (GBV) services
- 85% of GBV survivors reported that advocates helped them access support services
- Provided additional unanticipated services in response to survivor demand, including employment or financial assistance, education for survivors or their children, repatriation to Venezuela, and the United Nations Refugee Center (UNHCR) registration
Democracy International implemented the Women Exercising Leadership for Cohesion and Meaningful Empowerment (WELCOME) project to help 61 Venezuelan migrants experiencing GBV in Trinidad and Tobago understand their rights and options and access needed services. WELCOME connected women to trusted referral services through known community members, offered social support to promote survivors’ feelings of self-efficacy, and provided the necessary information and support to encourage survivors to receive referral services by matching them with trained advocates.
