Peacebuilding Fund
Start Date *: 29 Nov 2019

End Date*: 31 May 2022
Country: South Sudan Project Status: On Going
  Participating Organization:   Multiple

The project seeks to directly engage those implicated in the country’s ongoing violence and criminality, working with members of Wau Town’s youth gangs and other ‘at-risk’ youth. Responding in a timely manner to current trends and threats in South Sudan in general and Wau Town in specific, it thus tries to remedy some of the gaps in existing projects that tend to neglect the views and perspectives of those who are actually responsible for the kinds of insecurity. Along those lines, the project will address the absence of opportunities that provide youth with a sense of inclusion and belonging and a venue for channeling their energy outside of violence and crime. It will do so by supplying youth with the chance to acquire emotional self-regulation skills, together with literacy, livelihoods, educational and vocational training to encourage both attitudinal and behavioral change and aid youth in developing much needed coping mechanisms. It will utilize various innovative and creative Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) methods for engaging youth gang members and other ‘at risk’ youth to promote psycho-social well-being. Finally, it will challenge existing gender norms and beliefs among youth at-risk to stimulate behavior change and reduce violence.
