Since 2016, over 100 inmate trainees from Juba Central Prison have successfully graduated from the vocational training programmes and been released. UNDP helped establish these courses in collaboration with the National Prisons Service of South Sudan and funded by the Kingdom of the Netherlands. These are their stories.
The GoGirls initiative in South Sudan train student volunteers from universities to mentor and guide school children. They focus on computer literacy, basic programming skills, and broader positive life skills through support from UNDP’s Peace and Community Cohesion project. Read on to find out how.
On the ground in about 170 countries and territories, UNDP works to eradicate poverty while protecting the planet. We help countries develop strong policies, skills, partnerships and institutions so they can sustain their progress.
For over 30 years, UNDP has been supporting the South Sudanese in their fight against poverty. With the formation of the independent Republic of South Sudan in July 2011, UNDP established a Country Office and has been working all over the country to help build resillient and sustainable government institutions.
