The situation in South Sudan
Despite South Sudan’s peaceful secession from Sudan in 2011, insecurity and uncertainty persist in the world’s newest country. Communities remain vulnerable as they face food insecurity, malnutrition and a lack of basic services, and violence continues to threaten stability and prevent progress.
International aid agencies and community-based humanitarian organisations have been fighting to provide a vast range of essential services and support on the ground – everything from shelter for people displaced by violence to medical treatment, water and sanitation facilities to food supplies.
However, aid agencies face numerous challenges in providing assistance, from limited access and inadequate organisational capacities to attacks against aid workers. RedR strives to offer training that addresses the needs of aid workers and agencies and better equips them to deliver aid efficiently and effectively in difficult and volatile situations.
Our South Sudan office is based in Juba.
Building on more than six years of expert training in Darfur and across Sudan, RedR began to deliver training for humanitarian workers in South Sudan just one month after the country gained independence in July 2011. With a constantly evolving repertoire of classes, the RedR programme in South Sudan offers both open and tailor-made courses. In particular, RedR is committed to providing training to national aid workers and organisations to help build the capacity and capabilities of the local humanitarian sector in South Sudan.
Our achievements in 2012
The courses we run in South Sudan include both open courses and tailor-made courses fit for junior-, mid-, and senior-level staff.
The courses cover the following topics:
