AVSI is working to guarantee the rights of Venezuelan refugees and migrants living in Brazil in support of the Brazilian Government and UNHCR’s joint humanitarian emergency program “Operação Acolhida” (“Operation Welcome”). To achieve this goal, AVSI will contribute to improving access to formal work for Venezuelan refugees and migrants in Brazil and for the most vulnerable Brazilian population. AVSI will facilitate the socio-economic integration of Venezuelan refugees and migrants arriving in Boa Vista and Pacaraima, by means of voluntary relocation (“interiorization”) to other Brazilian states.
