What We Do

WATER SANITATION AND HYGIENE

The Program aims to support rural projects that provide drinkable water to the underserved communities in South Sudan. It also aims to enhance public knowledge on hygiene and sanitation promotion through public awareness raising and multiple channels, particularly for the hard-to-reach and underserved communities in South Sudan.

CHILD PROTECTION AND CHILD POVERTY REDUCTION

The program typically aims to ensure income generation stability, innovation and entrepreneurship among youth and women, which in turn increases their greater potentials to reach higher volumes and larger revenue that increase household income levels, thus improving their working capital, agricultural practices, strong market linkages, and business expansion planning skills.

ENTERPRISES DEVELOPMENT

Foundation provides training and technical assistance to farmer cooperatives, youth-led enterprises and grassroots associations. We train them in financial management system, good governance, financial reporting system, enterprises development and entrepreneurs mentoring. We also assist them in development of business plan, brand development and marketing strategies.

CAPACITY BUILDING FOR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

Capacity-building is a key means of implementation in enhancing and accelerating human, institutional and infrastructure capacity building initiatives and for assisting developing countries in building capacity to access a larger share of multilateral and global research and development programs.

However, the widespread insecurity, unreliable fuel importing coupled with hyperinflation have made diesel much more scarcer and expensive to rely on.
Foundations works with grassroots enterprises to exploit South Sudan’s ample energy potentials in the form of solar, wind and biomass. Developing these unexploited resources with modern alternative energy technology would place South Sudan at the forefront of sustainable energy infrastructure development that could meet domestic consumption.
