Our Services

We provide relief services, promote access to health, education, and food security and livelihoods, water & sanitation and disaster management while building peace.

Child Protection

All our projects are designed with a child protection programming lens .This is an integral component of all our projects and it is increasingly becoming a core portfolio given the agony that unaccompanied children undergo in the absence of their parents. ARUDA is an active member of the Protection cluster in Mingkaman as well as Juba.

IDP Relocation

ARUDA assisted UNHCR in Mingkaman to relocate most vulnerable IDP’s to various new IDP Sites 1, 2 and 3 with help of the Camp Managers (ACTED). Sustained peace and harmonious co-existence between the IDPs and host community is a key ingredient to the success of this activity .It is further monitoring the movement of individual IDP families between Bor and Mingkaman with the guidance of UNHCR.

WASH Programs

These have mainly been supported by GIZ through donation in kind .Under these department ARUDA is improving access to safe water through distribution of water purification tablets; improving sanitation facilities through lobbying WASH actors to construct gender segregated latrines in schools and health facilities, community led total sanitation(CLTS); hygiene promotion services in schools, IDPs settlement and surrounding host communities.

Support in Education

ARUDA coordinates all activities with the state Ministry of Education as well as other stakeholders and is an active member of the education cluster. ARUDA is lobbying for further funding by UNICEF to cover gaps following increasing number of IDPs in Upper Nile and Unity State as a result of South Sudan Crisis in 2013. Activities to be implemented here include the construction of safe protective temporary learning facilities/Spaces(TLS) equipped with gender segregated WASH facilities-including tents during emergencies; distribution of teaching and learning materials, conflict related psychosocial support and life-skills training (for teachers, PTA and local leaders), alternative learning program(ALP) for teachers and rehabilitation of schools and actions aimed at increasing awareness on the importance of education, particularly of girls.

Agricultural Activities

ARUDA supports food production in sustainable ways and provide support in protection and creation of livelihood opportunities to vulnerable people particularly women and youth in rural, peri urban and urban .ARUDA collaborates with County Directors of Livestock and Fisheries to implement livestock intervention, animal traction and agricultural extension project through a farmer field school model recommended by UNFAO. Other production components covered by ARUDA in our agricultural production program include general crop management, seed multiplication and affordable and suitable irrigation technologies e.g. drip irrigation.

Care for Livestock

The current movement of livestock into different states and the concentration and intermingling of large numbers of livestock in confined areas is already having devastating effects on animal health. During the period from September to December 2014, there were 22 reports of livestock disease outbreak from the ten states that constitute the Republic of South Sudan. As ARUDA, we offer vaccination, cattle dip service, deworming and other general practices that would result into full health of the livestock. This makes the beef seafer for consumption
