The programme strengthened the capacity of government institutions and civil society organizations to identify and assist vulnerable migrants; improve access to social and health services; and provide vital information on security concerns, legal entitlements and available shelters for those in transit. At the same time, the programme supported greater engagement of host communities, thereby breaking barriers and reducing fears and prejudice of migrants by the local population.
