Women, Orphans and Vulnerable Children, War affected communities, Internally Displaced children rural families and the Youth in Southern Sudan face enormous challenges related to occupation, conflict, deep rural poverty, food insecurity and lack of extracurricular activities. The need to maintain traditional agricultural practices grows as the consequences of Occupation and conflict threaten farming livelihoods. As the just ended 22 year civil war deny Southern Sudanese the right to access agricultural areas and trade restrictions limit the achievements of the agriculture sector. High unemployment and underemployment coupled with the high cost of non-food items continues to impact food security negatively, especially among poor rural households and female-headed households.

Children are affected especially by food insecurity as rates of anemia and other forms of malnutrition continue to rise in South Sudan.

To combat challenges facing Women, Orphans and Vulnerable Children, War affected communities, Internally Displaced children and their families and the Youth in Southern Sudan, Forum for Community Change and Development (FOFCOD) has launched an Entrepreneurship skill Development project for the rural poor in Southern Sudan.
