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.
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 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.
