SOS Sahel UK has worked in Sudan since 1985. Sudan is an enormous country and a highly complex and sensitive environment in which to work. Our team has built an excellent reputation, with expertise in conflict prevention and in tackling the underlying causes of poverty. Our conflict prevention activities to date have been supported by the United Nations, as well as other generous donors.
We work closely with our partner organisation in Sudan, SOS Sahel Sudan, to implement our activities. The Director of SOS Sahel Sudan is Mr Salih Majid Eldouma, under whose expert guidance the organisation is growing.
In Red Sea State, eastern region, we are helping settled Beja families in the Arba'at delta through training in water harvesting and farming techniques and education for women.
In North and South Kordofan States we are working with herding and farming groups to help them overcome their conflicts and peacefully share access to the sparse forests, water and pasture that they each depend upon. In North Kordofan, we operate in Sheikan, Um Rowaba and Bara localities and we are expanding this work into new areas Nohud, Gabiesh, Abu Zabad and Wadbanedah, which lie on the border with Darfur. In South Kordofan we currently operate in Rashad, Dilling and Kadugli.
Darfur is SOS Sahel’s newest project area in Sudan. In Darfur we are operating from our office in El Fasher and working to strengthen civil society organisations in both North and West Darfur States. Salih Eldouma and his team are also looking at ways to further expand activities there in the future.
