Women and Youth Demonstrate Progress Towards Building Communities of Peace and Resilience During UNDP, UN Women and Sweden Monitoring Visit in Yambio
Supported by UNDP’s Peace and Community Cohesion project, the GoGirls train volunteer mentors (university students) who support the school children. They focus on computer literacy, basic programming skills, and broader positive life skills. The school children learn to use Scratch, a platform to create stories using graphics and animation.
The recovery stories of Nome, Juma and Nako highlight UNDP's commitment to rebuilding trust, restoring productive capacities and creating synergies to help communities to recover. Rehabilitation of Masia Market in Yambio, with support from the Government of Japan, is part of this broader Partnership for Recovery and Resilience initiative in Yambio.
James is a recent graduate of the Entrepreneurship Training Workshop in Aweil, hosted by UNDP and facilitated by master trainers from EMPRETEC Mauritius. The training was funded by the Government of Japan and is part of UNDP’s efforts to restore livelihood and productive capacities as part of an integrated recovery and resilience response.
UNDP is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in some 170 countries and territories, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners. UNDP has been supporting the South Sudanese people in their struggle against poverty for over 30 years. With the formation of the independent Republic of South Sudan in July 2011, UNDP established a Country Office and has staff working all over the country to help build government institutions.
