Housing for veterans for Sustainable Peace and Development (2017-2018): The objective of this project was to address the issue of homelessness of the war veterans through housing assistance to reintegrate them into the community for civil life and national unity of the Republic of South Sudan. The Housing for Sustainable Peace and Development project provided war veterans with shelter as a key element of re-integrating them and achieving peace. The shelter delivery strategy adopted the ‘people’s process’ approach successfully used in Sri Lanka where beneficiaries contributed in various ways to the construction of their own homes. A subsidy was provided to purchase crucial inputs such as roofing sheets and cement, and the beneficiaries benefitted from technical assistance provided and training in various construction trades.
One Stop Youth Centre (OSYC) for Peace and Development (2017-2019): The main goal of the project was to establish and operationalize a model OSYC in South Sudan that contributed to conflict mitigation and consolidation of the peace process through economic growth and technical skills for rehabilitation and reconstruction of key social and economic infrastructure in South Sudan. The project strengthened employment opportunities for unskilled, under-skilled, unemployed and underemployed youth through revitalized vocational training capacities and technical skills training in centres of excellence. It further provided leadership and life skills training to foster youth contributions to conflict mitigation and nation building.
Enhancing women’s access to land to consolidate peace (2019-2020): The project aims to enhance women’s access to land to consolidate peace in South Sudan through capacity building of traditional authorities’ leaders and communities (female and male) to feel more confident and committed to gender responsive land conflict/dispute resolution. It also aims to Improve land management and administrative system at state and county level that facilitate/enhance access to land tenure security of most vulnerable women as IDPs/Returnees.
