AAH South Sudan programme was started over 20 years ago and is the largest of AAH-I’s five country programmes. It is uniquely known for its community empowerment approach for helping refugees, stayees, returnees, and host communities get over the effects of war and other forms of conflict. The programme runs projects in primary health care services, food and income security, education, water, hygiene and sanitation and capacity building programmes for peace and reintegration. Currently, the programme is operational in eight out of the 10 States of South Sudan.
AAH South Sudan is a country programme of Action Africa Help International (AAH-I), an African-led, not for- profit humanitarian and development agency based in Nairobi Kenya that supports livelihood-challenged communities to sustainably improve their wellbeing and standard of living. With other country programmes in Uganda, Zambia, Somalia and Kenya, AAH-I has more than 20 years’ experience working with communities in conflict and post-conflict situations, including refugees, internally displaced people, and host communities.
