Conectando Caminos por los Derechos

July 30, 2020

USAID’s Venezuelan Migrant Human Rights Activity (or CCD for its Spanish name Conectando Caminos por los Derechos) supports medium and long-term development for Venezuelan migrants, Colombian returnees and receptor communities in Colombia. CCD’s goal is to increase community cohesion and citizen security by ensuring that all members of society live free from crime and violence, regardless of their legal status in the country. CCD is implemented through a consortium between Freedom House, Pact, the American Bar Association (ABA ROLI) and Internews. CCD operates in metropolitan areas with large migrant populations like Riohacha, Maicao, Cúcuta, Bucaramanga, Santa Marta, Cartagena, Barranquilla, Cali, Medellín, Bogotá, Pasto and Ipiales, and it runs from May 2020-April 2024.

CCD seeks to address those human rights violations that are most prevalent in receptor communities and have the highest risk of reducing community cohesion and security. The activity supports prevention and protection of people from labor exploitation, sexual exploitation, forced recruitment, human trafficking, enforced disappearance and gender-based violence. Among CCD’s prioritized populations, emphasis is placed on women, youth, indigenous people, Afro-Colombians and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and intersex (LGBTI) persons.
