Women and the Youth in South Sudan face enormous challenges related to occupation, conflict, deep rural poverty, food insecurity and lack of extracurricular activities. During the 20-year civil war, Women with Disabilities and their children in South Sudan have been the most affected members of South Sudanese society. Women with Disabilities in South Sudan have been forced to operate in an environment that is often hostile and influx.
