What We DO

South Sudan people

01. Protection, Gender and Inclusion

In line with our vision; Protection, Gender and Inclusion is central in our programming. We know that to save lives, overcome poverty and social injustice, every person at-risk or those requiring protection needs to be assisted, universal human rights need to be upheld, unequal power relations within society needs to be addressed, and women and youths needs to be empowered.

We support the Voice and Agency of Persons with Disabilities and Older Persons, and ensure that our interventions are inclusive and accessible to Persons with Disabilities and Older Persons. We work with marginalised women and girls, including other allies to address structural and systemic barriers impeding attainment of women’s and children’s rights, including those drivers deeply enrooting gender inequality and excluding women in public space.
