                                                                                            South Sudan Refugee Project

Resulting from a civil war which broke out in 2013, there are 1 million South Sudanese in Uganda with refugee status. Nurture Africa’s Humanitarian response to this crisis, addresses the education and child protection needs of South Sudanese refugee women and children by:

  1. By providing access to and provision of quality academic, health, child rights and gender based violence education. 

  2. By contributing to, through the provision of psychosocial support services, the early recovery and reduced impact of the refugee crisis among the refugees and host communities in two refugee settlements in northern Uganda.

Nurture Africa has established this project in Imvepi refugee camp (127,000+ refugees), Arua district and Palabek refugee camp (42,000+ refugees)  in Lamwo district

                                                                                         Child Rights & Gender Equality

Defilement is the most common crime committed against children standing at 57.7% for all reported child abuse cases (ANPPCAN 2009). Whilst corporal punishment is illegal it is tolerated and practised widely in schools in Uganda. 

Nurture Africa believes that any child that is abused has the right to justice. Nurture Africa is working to uphold children's rights by:

  1. Working with all staff and children within its partners schools on the eradication of corporal punishment and promoting alternative methods of discipline.

  2. We support local police to ensure that every reported child abuse case within our areas of operation is adequately followed up in the community until justice is achieved.
