We are a leading humanitarian organization dedicated to fighting poverty and injustice and: reducing human suffering. We place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Women are at the heart of PCO-SOUTH SUDAN's community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of disease including HIV/AIDs, and increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. PCO-SOUTH SUDAN also delivers emergency aid to survivors of conflict and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.
PCO-SOUTH SUDAN is one of the nation’s leading national humanitarian organizations, committed to helping families amongst the most vulnerable communities improve their lives and achieve lasting victories over poverty and suffering. Founded in 2006 to provide relief to survivors of war, PCO-SOUTH SUDAN quickly became a tested and trusted vehicle for the compassion and generosity of hundreds of thousands.
The vision of PCO-SOUTH SUDAN is “Peace, Development and Community Empowerment for All” amongst different communities in South Sudan. We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security. PCO-SOUTH SUDAN will be a national force and a partner of choice within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. We will be known everywhere for our unshakable commitment to the dignity of people.
Our mission is to serve individuals and families amongst the most vulnerable communities in the Republic of South Sudan (ROSS). Drawing strength from our diversity, resources and experience, we promote innovative solutions and are advocates for national responsibility. We facilitate lasting change by:
PCO-SOUTH SUDAN believes that citizens have a right to hold governments and institutions accountable, to expect them to respect their rights and do what they say they will do. Likewise, we believe that non-governmental organizations should be accountable to the communities in which they work, to partner organizations, and to those from whom they receive support.
Peace Corps Organization- South Sudan is not a religious, political or a commercial organization; we are a South Sudanese national charity whose vision is to promote “Peace, Development and Community Empowerment for All” amongst communities facing poverty and suffering as a result of natural or man-made disasters. We are therefore fully committed on providing humanitarian, early recovery and development support to all communities irrespective of religion, gender, creed, political affiliation, tribe etc.
PCO-South Sudan believes that given timely& appropriate support all disaster affected communities have an inherent ability to pull themselves out of crises. Therefore, the approach adopted when implementing our programmes is fully participatory; in which ideas from the affected communities form the basic foundation of our planning, design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of all initiatives. We also expect full commitment to these values from our staff, partners and targeted beneficiaries.
