2019 was a very exciting year for us. During the year we perfected our working system in community development outlining a methodology that has translated into an enhanced implementation of the Community Self Reliance Programme. Fugee has also supported the implementation of the Community Connectivity Fund Project, channeling funds and establishing synergies between implementers.
Community Self-Reliance Programme
The Community Self Reliance (CSR) Programme established and upscaled initiatives designed and implemented by refugees living in Malaysia.
As an incubator programme implemented by Fugee and funded through the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Malaysia, the CSR Programme provided small grants and high level outreach and technical support to create an environment for self-reliant individuals and communities.
Throughout the project, 4 workshops have been delivered by the CSR team to the community groups funded in 2019 in Penang and KL on the following main subjects: proposal development, finance and reporting, project and risk management, fundraising and sustainability.
Fugee designed and implemented a capacity building system based on:
Fugee conducted surveys with project leaders and various community members involved in the programme. The aim was to identify improvements in self-confidence, trust and integration – among other impacts – of CSR participants.
