South Sudan should be a country full of hope 11 years after gaining independence. Instead it's now in the grip of massive humanitarian crisis. Political conflict, compounded by economic woes and drought, has caused massive displacement, raging violence and dire food shortages. Over 7 million people are in need of aid, including around 6.9 million people experiencing hunger 7.7 million people are estimated to face crisis levels of hunger.


The project will target 10 Farmer Field Schools who are predominately peasantry communities with little knowledge of modern agricultural practices and income generating opportunities leading to problems of food insecurity, poverty and environmental degradation. The main outcome of the action will be food security has improved for the population affected by conflicts and malnutrition.
