Access to Basic Services in Conflict Affected Communities


This project aims to provide vulnerable communities with sustainable services to ensure improved food security, improved school enrollment and water, sanitation and hygiene services.



In the targeted states of Blue Nile and Greater Kordofan, food security is deteriorating at an alarming rate. The current record market prices of food commodities have put around 90% of the IDP and refugee population not able to afford the local food basket. An estimated 45% of water sources are not functioning and have become prone to contamination. The education sector is currently riddled with dilapidated infrastructure as a result of the protracted armed conflict in the targeted areas. The majority of residents in these targeted areas are poor and cannot afford basic requirements for their children to remain in school. Finally, malnutrition is the leading cause of death in children under 5, while most health facilities and nutritional delivery points are severely understaffed and underequipped. This project aims to address the aforementioned issues and beyond by targeting the most at risk communities.
