Leadership Skills & Community Empowerment

In South Sudan, our program trains young literate women and girls in conflict-affected areas to become ambassadors for equality and peace. They undergo training on how to conduct literacy education, build leadership skills, and learn about UNSCR 1325 and the supporting resolutions on Women, Peace and Security. Once the training is completed, these young women continue the cycle by going out into local communities to teach literacy and other skills to young women and girls who have had little or no access to formal education. They have not let dislocation due to conflict deter them. Literacy classes are also conducted in the Rhino Refugee Camp in Uganda where a number of them have been relocated since war broke out again in 2017.

These young women have found theater to be an important vehicle for community conflict-resolution and peacebuilding. Using skits is an effective way to bring greater awareness to culturally-relevant issues and how problems can be resolved through dialogue.
