SSFI develops grassroots initiatives in South Sudan. Projects include a school, girls mentoring program, and women's workshops; distributing agricultural and medical supplies; and sponsoring medical clinics and pastor training. Most importantly, we have led and participated in countless peace initiatives, including talks leading up to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.
South Sudan is the youngest nation -- and one of the least developed. 4 million people are in an emergency level food crisis. 1.4 million are internally displaced. 3 states are in a civil war. Only 27% of the population is literate. More than 25% of the population has HIV or AIDs. Almost 75% don't have access to education, employment, or clean water.
SSFI is a non-profit organization sponsoring grassroots projects that provide sustainable skills and resources to the people of South Sudan, empowering them to live peaceful and self-reliant lives.
