South Sudan

Number of people served in 2022: 241,834

More than two million displaced people live in South Sudan due to conflicts and violence within the country and its neighbour, Sudan. Of those affected, 1.82 million people are internally displaced and 287,400 are refugees from Sudan. As instability and violence continues, more are in need of protection and safety every day.


Our work in South Sudan

JRS provides a variety of services in South Sudan. In Maban, JRS provides training for teachers, school materials, a daycare for disabled children, home visits, counseling, and emergency assistance. JRS Maban also coordinates social centers for refugee women while providing them opportunities to learn tailoring, life skills, and gain psychosocial support. In Yambio, JRS provides education scholarships to girls attending secondary school, sanitary kits to young women attending school, and teacher training scholarships to assist with diplomas and education degrees. JRS also provides a community and school-based peace building initiative that uses mediation and workshops for encouraging reconciliation rather than violence.
