Empowering Rural Villages in South Sudan

A Nonprofit for Improving the Communities’ Quality of Life


Empowering People of SOUTH SUDAN

Sudan Development Foundation (SUDEF) is a nonprofit working in South Sudan in partnership with rural villages to improve their quality of life. Our community-based approach recognizes the resilience, the shared responsibility, and the ongoing commitment necessary to establish self-reliant, healthy communities that build lasting peace.

Creating solutions to the challenges of rural development requires working together with communities, the local government, and other NGOs to create a long-term commitment beyond the life of the initial project.

The people of South Sudan are moving forward and building a new nation. They have shown incredible resilience, commitment, and fortitude. Please join us in helping them build healthy, independent, and productive communities and a promising future.
