SRH and SGBV programme

SAADO has been operating and implementing the programme activities in Jonglei State (Bor County) and Lakes State (Awerial, Mingkaman) through UNFPA funding. Gender-Based Violence in South Sudan has remained complex due to the ingrained societal norms and cultures which has proved quite a challenge in taking critical step towards shifting people’s attitudes and behaviors to be more inclusive, open-minded and inclusive to justice for the GBV survivors.

In monitoring the progress of in the reduction of SGBV, the project officers in the field have been presenting their finding to the GBV sub-cluster on a weekly basis and also reporting to the national country office in order to address the gaps, constraints and challenges.
