Strategic Objectives

Delivering Life-Saving GBV Prevention, Response and Risk Mitigation Services to conflict affected women, girls, boys and men in Duk Pajut and Pagak Payams Jonglei State. The Project is funded by GBV Sub-Cluster (South Sudan Humanitarian Fund)


More than 2 billion poor people across the developing world depend on wood energy for cooking and/or heating. In South Sudan, which is no exception, fuel-wood is the main source of energy for the vast majority of the population. But since the outbreak of violent conflict in 2013, some 2.5 million people have been displaced from their homes, and as a result, availability and access to this natural resource has become a complex and contentious issue, for women in particular and for families, displaced communities and the environment at large. SAADO is providing GBV risks mitigation through livelihoods programming by training women and girls on molding of fuel-efficient stove using locally available materials to conduct learning and knowledge sharing workshop with all the stakeholders towards the end of the project.


·         To mitigate risks of GBV to conflict affected communities in Duk County


  • SAADO established tents to be used as WGFS due to the flooding nature and these tents accommodate at least 400 women and girls per training session. The two tents were erected in Pajut and Pagak
  • 1027 out of 1200 targeted beneficiaries I.e. 216 girls and 811 women were trained on bed sheets knitting, table cloth and threads knitting as well as beading.
  • 1,916 beneficiaries have been reached with sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) prevention messages which have been done through door to door awareness.
  • Psycho-social support was provided to the gender Based Violence survivors through counselling from our Women and Girl Friendly Spaces by case workers. The Women leaders and the support groups, outreach workers received awareness through door-to-door awareness and were able to identify cases and forward to our social workers for counselling and referrals.
  • Two (2) Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) were conducted, with one FGD in each of targeted Payams, for the Boys, Girls, Women and Men separately boys and girls in age group of 14 years to 18 years and Women and Men in age group of 18 years to 50years. Each FGD was comprised of twelve (12) to fifteen (15) people who are influential and have relevant information about the communities such as chiefs, youth leaders, religious leaders’ representatives, community members, elders for the FGDs for Girls, Boys, Women and Men from the selected.

  • 131 women and 69 girls were trained on Fuel Efficient Stoves from both Pajut and Pagak. CHADO technical team of two ladies were contracted to train total of 200 women and girls within 4 days per location with overall total of 8 days using the local available resources like Mud, Cow dung and grass. The selection was focusing on vulnerable women and girls like female heads of families, widows and adolescent girls with major goal of economically empowering them.
  • SAADO learning and knowledge sharing workshop with all the stakeholders towards the end of the project targeting 60 participants was conducted. 17 males and 13 females, a total of 30 participants and in Pagak, 20 males and 10 women for a total of 30 participants attended the workshop was for one day in each location. The main aim for the workshop was to notify the communities about the end of the project, findings from the safety audit assessments, lessons learnt and the way forward. The way forwards basically and strongly emphasized the role of committee of elders, project management committees and male champion volunteer groups to keep going with the community awareness, manage Sexual and Gender Based violence (SGBV) and linked up with referral agencies within the locations.


SAADO has been operating and implementing the programme activities in Jonglei State (Duk County). 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.
