Impact report South Sudan
IOM began its WPP operations in South Sudan in 2015 to support displaced women affected by the continuing conflict, strengthen their leadership and
participation and equip them with livelihood skills that would help their confidence and economic independence.
Since 2015, IOM has trained 46 IDPs in South Sudan on conducting a participatory assessment to measure the understanding of participation and the main barriers to women's and girls' engagement and representation in displacement sites. Based on the assessment's findings, IOM designed community-led strategies implemented throughout seven consecutive phases.
More than 965 displaced women in South Susan, 112 with a disability, received livelihood training, leadership and communication support, and literacy courses, and 153 have received livelihood kits to support their economic independence.
This document explores the impact of the intervention during the sixth phase of the project, which took place in the year 2020 and 2021 and focused on training women in leadership, and communication skills and equipping them with income-generating skills.
