In this scenario, acquiring the skills to cultivate one’s own garden or being able to raise goats and pigs and produce subsistence food oneself is a vital resource.  Exactly what Solidarity with South Sudan does with the Sustainable Agriculture Project in Riimenze (SAP-R), which:

  • trains families in sustainable farming methods to feed themselves and their communities.
  • provides training and income-generating opportunities for women, making them active participants in the country’s development process;
  • promotes ecological practices that protect the land and ensure long-term sustainability;

By encouraging self-sufficiency, community collaboration and sustainable practices, SAP-R empowers people to fight hunger and address the root causes of food insecurity.

Together, we can cultivate a future of hope in South Sudan
