IOM has consulted with both government and civil society organizations in this regard and has encouraged stakeholders to take a holistic approach, noting the critical need to create awareness and increase protection mechanisms. NGOs in South Africa, however, face financial challenges and this has hampered their ability to reach out to communities through prevention and capacity building activities, and to victims of trafficking with direct assistance. In order for them to be able to address concerns with regard to trafficking during the critical time of the FIFA World Cup and to benefit from IOM consultation on their planned activities, the provision of funds to these NGOs through IOM will result in measurable outcomes.

IOM through this project will issue a call for proposals inviting relevant NGOs to submit a concise short–term project proposal following the IOM proposal template. IOM will seek only micro-project ideas. Through the establishment of a common selection board consisting of members of the US Embassy in South Africa and IOM, NGOs will be selected in order to channel funds for activities on the ground for the prevention of trafficking in vulnerable groups, especially children, during and shortly after the FIFA World Cup 2010.

Following the selection procedure, IOM will organize a consultative initiation meeting for all selected NGOs. The meeting will ensure common understanding of the objectives of the project and coordination between different NGOs regarding concrete activities on the ground in order to avoid duplication and use of the funds in the best way possible.

Throughout the project, IOM will provide technical assistance to the NGOs through guidance, monitoring and evaluation.
