South Sudan

We are responding to the food crisis in South Sudan where approximately 60% of the population are predicted to face acute food shortages this year.

Plan International has been operating in South Sudan since 2006. At present we work in Central and Eastern Equatoria, Lakes state and Greater Pibor Adminstrative Area. 

We work with partners including civil society, the private sector, UN Agencies and government institutions to improve children’s lives.  

Our work supports children, especially girls, to access their rights to education, health, protection and economic security. We are also working to bring lasting positive change to a country that has emerged from decades of civil war and continues to experience instability and insecurity.

We strive to advance children’s rights, equality for girls and ensure that all children, families and communities actively participate in their country’s development. 

Our key areas of work are: 

  • Inclusive, quality education
  • Children and young people’s economic rights
  • Participation and protection from violence
  • Disaster risk reduction and management.
How is the food crisis in South Sudan affecting girls' lives?
South Sudan is facing multiple humanitarian crises from conflict, to cyclical drought and floods, to severe food shortages. These issues affect girls' lives in serious and far reaching ways - from stopping their education to increasing their likelihood of being married far too young.
