Community Resilience Initiative Baseline

The Community Resilience Initiative (CRI) is a project funded by USAID/Eastern and Southern Caribbean and implemented by Democracy International in Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) in close collaboration with four local civil society organizations. CRI reduces the risk of victimization of refugees and migrants and to enhance direct, positive engagement between Trinidadian/Tobagonian and Venezuelan communities. Using People-to-People approaches, CRI builds trust across communities by fostering positive social interactions between refugees and migrants and their host communities, increasing stability and community-driven resilience.
