About BRAC South Sudan

BRAC South Sudan is legally registered as a branch of Stitching BRAC International with the government of the Republic of South Sudan. Since its inception in 2006, BRAC South Sudan has implemented various programs in education, youth empowerment, agriculture, food security and livelihoods, health, emergency response and microfinance. In 2017, BRAC South Sudan down-scaled its operations as a result of the heightened conflict that had made BRAC’s programmatic operations extremely difficult. In 2019 BRAC South Sudan gradually re-opened operations in South Sudan with a programmatic focus on education, health, youth empowerment, agriculture and livelihoods, water and sanitation, and climate change. Currently BRAC South Sudan is actively working in the four states of Eastern Equatoria, Central Equatoria, Western Equatoria and Northern Bahr el Ghazal and will be expanding to Western Bahr el Ghazal in the near future.

About Education for Peace, Recovery and Resilience (EPRR) program

In addition to BRAC South Sudan, implementing partners include Norwegian Refugee Council and Democracy International, as well as several national NGOs. The program covers four objectives: to (1) increase access to equitable learning opportunities for boys and girls, (2) improve learning outcomes through enhanced literacy and numeracy instruction, (3) enhance recovery and resilience through psychosocial support and peacebuilding activities, and (4) increase the capacity of communities to support education and increase ownership to maintain education facilities.
