Community Empowerment Programs
Our peace-building efforts seek to rebuild social fabric, trust and forge a shared South Sudan’s identity through; community and inter-cultural dialogues, psycho-social support, sports for peace and advocacy. These activities are aimed at transforming and mitigating conflicts in communities devastated by protracted civil wars and violence.
Education and vocational skills development are rare opportunities that can unlock the economic potentials of young people and women in underserved communities such as the refugees. The Youth Empowerment Scholarship (YES) is aimed at creating these opportunities for unprivileged kids and youth. When given opportunities, young people can champion peace and development.
With a specific focus on mother and child health (MCH), we build capacity of the axillary health workers such as nurses, midwives, public health leaders and Traditional Birth Attendants (TBA) through training who can carry out MCH education and awareness-raising in communities. This is to reduce high maternal and under-5 mortality rate cause partly by lack of adequate healthcare information.
