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.
In the past 20 years, SSFI has developed grass roots initiatives including a school, girls mentoring program, and women's workshops. We have distributed agricultural equipment and medical supplies and sponsored medical clinics and pastor training. Most importantly, we have led and participated in countless peace initiatives: including the talks leading up to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.
