Presentación del Programa

El programa de USAID Conectando Caminos por los Derechos (CCD) apoya la transición entre la ayuda humanitaria y el desarrollo de mediano y largo plazo para migrantes venezolanos, colombianos retornados y comunidades receptoras en Colombia.

CCD contribuye a aumentar el acceso de migrantes y víctimas de violaciones de derechos humanos a servicios de justicia de calidad.

Por su parte, la Defensoría del Pueblo impulsa y lidera las Casas de los Derechos, la cual es una estrategia descentralizada de atención especializada, que nace con el propósito de hacer acompañamiento a la población migrante y con necesidad de protección internacional a partir de estrategias de atención comunitaria que apunten a la reconstrucción del tejido social, el fortalecimiento de las redes sociales, la formación de líderes y lideresas que se conviertan en gestores y promotores de derechos en sus comunidades; así mismo a través de los equipos interdisciplinarios pretende coadyuvar a las personas y comunidades beneficiarias en la exigibilidad de sus derechos, velando para que no se les restrinja o limite [disminuir las barreras de acceso para que la población acceda a sus derechos] y en especial prevenir nuevas revictimizaciones en esta búsqueda de la paz.
