U-DIREF Services

U-DIREF provides life-saving support services in the shelter, camp management, protection, environment, food, nutrition, logistics, water, sanitation, and hygiene while enhancing resilience through livelihood recovery programmes in post-crisis and transition settings.

Protection

U-DIREF ensures fair protection processes and documentation while targeting assistance to people with specific needs and promoting peaceful coexistence between the populations of concern (PoCs) and local communities.

We diligently register and assist all the targeted populations with shelter and food as a cross-cutting issue. We also lay emphasis on the principles of safety and dignity, avoid causing harm, while also stressing the prevention and minimization of any unintended negative effects of our intervention, which can increase people’s vulnerability to both physical and psycho-social risks.

We ensure that camp populations access assistance and services in proportion to their vulnerability and without barriers. This includes paying attention to people with special needs who may be unable to access timely assistance and services.

Meanwhile, to ensure accountability, we always set up appropriate mechanisms through which affected populations can measure the adequacy of interventions, and address concerns and complaints without any fear of losing their space in the project.

Food security and livelihoods

The organisation focuses on improving the nutritional well-being of uprooted people, especially under-5 yrs, lactating or breast-feeding mothers, and pregnant women.

We have achieved a lot in this area due to our policy of avoiding gaps during food distribution and the prevention of large segments of the PoCs from remaining vulnerable. Our livelihood intervention involves helping designated communities to manage food production towards generating personal income as a way of promoting self-reliance, developing environment-friendly and sustainable means of livelihood, promoting social cohesion among PoCs while preventing and reducing violent extremism among young people.

Community empowerment and self-reliance

U-DIREF contribute to the economic self-reliance of persons of concern by facilitating their access to self-employment opportunities. This is possible through capacity building and asset strengthening where life skills, including all forms of improved farming methods, trade, and craft, are opened for learning.

Shelter and NFIs

U-DIREF promotes access to habitable and covered living spaces that provide a secure and healthy environment with privacy, comfort, and dignity. This is done by maintaining traditional emergency shelters using plastic sheets or tents, providing non-food items to IDPs or Refugees in need. The organization also encourages the use of committees within camp/settlement settings to support service provision and lays sustainability structures on shelter construction and maintenance beyond funding windows.

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

U-DIREF supports Camp populations to access safe potable and hygienic water by constructing and or maintaining water supply and sanitation systems.

We also encourage the construction of separate, adequate and properly cited numbers of latrines and bathrooms for both men and women in order to decrease the risk of water-borne diseases and epidemics in the camps.

Education and Health

We ensure optimal access to education by providing pre-school and primary education services, maintaining school infrastructures, and supporting catch-up classes and vocational training for the camp populations. We place emphasis on pre-school education and the establishment of early childhood learning centers as a way of ensuring that every child receives the desired education.

Camp Coordination and Camp Management

Our camp management practices encourage partnership among all stakeholders towards creating a harmonious environment for service delivery and up-take.

As a partner in the CCCM sector, we maintain a close relationship with all service providers in the camp as well as elected representatives of the camp population to identify concerns and ensure that services effectively and efficiently meet the actual needs of the camp population, thereby optimizing the effectiveness of the camps’ activities and strengthening community mobilization.

Psycho-social Services

Psycho-social support is an integral part of U-DIREF’s emergency response. The organisation provides supports to targeted vulnerable populations and communities in an effort to heal and rebuild social structures after an emergency or a critical event. Our program is developed to change people into active survivors rather than passive victims. It also prevents distress with the aim of avoiding post-traumatic stress disorder.

Health

We optimise the health status of the populations by ensuring unhindered access to primary healthcare and facilitating access to secondary and tertiary healthcare services. Where health facilities are lacking, we have the capacity and capability of establishing and or upgrading existing ones to provide especially antenatal services to pregnant women and respond to patents coming down with cases of malaria, cholera, respiratory infections, as well as skin and intestinal parasitic diseases.

Environment and Access to Energy

U-DIREF promotes environment-friendly practices and encourages communities’ access to domestic energy. This includes awareness-raising sessions on environmental protection, and use of improved stoves and renewable energy practices. Focus is also placed on identifying and encouraging innovation in policy and practice within the humanitarian sector to improve access to sustainable energy, through new solutions for heating, cooking, lighting, water, and sanitation.
