Protection and Advancement of the Rights of Refugees, Asylum Seekers and Undocumented Migrants
AMP's (Adonis Musati Project)Peer Support Group Programme offers psychological support and practical resources to disenfranchised refugee and asylum seeker communities within Cape Town and builds sustainable support systems within the community. Through this intervention the project empowers individuals and equips them with the skills needed to transition to self-reliance and to lead positive, meaningful lives.
The project rendered advisory services to beneficiaries not only with issues related to the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) but also with other government bodies and institutions where people were facing similar difficulties in accessing services. Services included rights violations - rental agreements, access to South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) grants, school and education rights, workers compensation and unfair dismissals.
