Project Name South Sudan: Plan International, Integrated Protection, Skills Building and Learning for Empowerment of Adolescents, Youth, families and communities in Yei, Morobo and Kajokeji
Project Detail This project seeks to complement the previous phase of an integrated protection intervention. It will build on key successes, achievements and key lessons learned through the provision of integrated life-saving emergency child protection services, skills building, empowerment of adolescent youth and communities in the targeted locations. South Sudan continues to face a dire humanitarian situation. The Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO 2023) estimates that 9.4 million people, 53% of whom are children need humanitarian aid and protection. The targeted counties of Yei, Morobo and Kajokeji are faced with insecurity, violence and access constraints, caused by cattle migrations, attacks by non-signatory groups, food insecurity, economic and climate shocks and poor infrastructure. The area hosts, over 140,945 IDPs as of May 2023 and is a key entry point for refugee returns from Uganda and the DRC. This puts pressure on already limited resources within communities. Given the current window of stability, the situation in the targeted counties is relatively calm. Nevertheless, children remain vulnerable and face various forms of risks, such as forced recruitment, child labour, early pregnancies and Early and Forced Child Marriages (EFCM). According to authorities, over 39,000 girls and 44,000 boys will require education support. The proposed project will therefore aim to scale up holistic child protection interventions around prevention, risk mitigation and response. Objectives Empower adolescents, youth, families and communities to improve their resilience and protect themselves from violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation in increasingly peaceful communities in Greater Yei, South Sudan.
