We are an organization who believes that ensuring women's full equality and participation in society is one of the most effective ways to build a just, peaceful and sustainable South Sudan. This microproject will jumpstart the beginning of the larger vision for Life Skills training and Improved livelihoods for Marginalized Women with Disabilities in South Sudan.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Women and the Youth in South Sudan face enormous challenges related to occupation, conflict, deep rural poverty, food insecurity and lack of extracurricular activities.
