PLAN IN SOUTH SUDAN

Plan emergency teams are on the ground helping thousands of children and families who have been forced to flee recent outbreaks of violence in South Sudan.

Plan has been working in South Sudan, including before its independence, since 2006 – helping poor children to access their rights to education, health, protection and economic security.

We work with more than 20,000 children – mainly in Juba, Lainya and Yei counties in Central Equatoria – to bring lasting improvements in a country that has emerged from decades of civil war.

PLAN’S CORE ACTIVITIES IN SOUTH SUDAN

We currently work in Central Equatoria, Eastern Equatoria, Northern Bahr El Ghazal and Jongolei, and plan to expand our operations to Lakes state in the coming year.

Improving access to basic education

Good governance

Disaster risk reduction and humanitarian response
