Empowering girls and women in South Sudan

type: Donation, NGO, Volunteering
by: Deniz Zehra Tavli

The Forum for Community Change and Development (FOFCOD) is an organization dedicated to the needs of Southern Sudanese young women and Girls.

Founded in 2009 by a group of innovative women, the organization has grown into a broader Youth (girl) movement that is committed to contributing to the national development through programs of Human rights, Democracy, Conflict resolution, health, Education Livelihoods and food security, Entrepreneurship, peace and justice in South Sudan. The organization focuses especially on women's rights since women in South Sudan have confronted manifold violations of their human rights including physical, sexual, psychological and economic abuse, cutting across boundaries of age, race, culture, wealth and geography.

Focusing on gender equality, FOFCOD believes development isn't fully attainable without women making decisions with men, as equals. Support this brilliant organization and their goals by donating or volunteering!
