IMPROVED LIVELIHOODS FOR VENEZUELANS IN PERU

Speeches Shim

The more than one million Venezuelans residing in Peru left their country in pursuit of a better life, including access to a decent livelihood. This pursuit can be difficult, especially in the context of the pandemic. USAID supports activities that facilitate the economic insertion of Venezuelan migrants and refugees as well as local populations. This activity, implemented by the local non-governmental organization CEDRO, is mainly focused on the cities of Lima, Arequipa and Trujillo, where the largest populations of Venezuelan immigrants reside, but it also covers regions of the Mancomunidad Regional de los Andes, where they look to enhance the positive effect of skilled migration.
