Solidarity with South Sudan

UISG - USG

Solidarity with South Sudan is a UISG/USG sponsored collaborative venture of more than 170 religious congregations who have united their charisms, finances and personnel in response to the invitation of the Sudan Catholic Bishops’ Conference to rebuild the Church and society in South Sudan following more than five decades of civil war.

 

Why now?
This is a KAIROS moment for South Sudan.  Decades of civil war have seriously hampered the country’s development.  It is an opportunity to help build a new nation in collaboration with the local church and the people of South Sudan.

Current initiatives:

  • over 1,000 teachers are in training
  • nurse training has commenced
  • full-time pre-service teacher training will begin in October
  • commercial and community farming
  • working with the local church to train parish personnel and youth leaders
  • women are being formed to serve as peace builders and healers

 

What is needed?
South Sudan’s greatest need is the building of human capacity. To assist with this task, Solidarity welcomes sisters, brothers, priests and lay personnel to help train teachers, health care workers, pastoral agents and community developers.
