About Us

Our Identity: "Agency for transformation, Peace and Development"

SPEDP was founded in 2007 and registered as a national non- governmental  organisation  in May 2009 and under Relief and Rehabilitation Commission (RRC) in April 2011. SPEDP is cur- rently ;operating in six former states in South Sudan namely: Northern Bahr el Ghazal, Central Equatoria, Eastern Equatoria, Jonglei, Unity and Upper Nile. The organisation has also been registered in Uganda and operates in refugee Camps in Koboko, Yumbe and Arua Districts that host mostly South Sudanese refugees who fled the country following the December 2013 and the July 2016 conflicts which erupted in Juba.

SPEDP responds to both humanitarian and development needs in the areas of; education, food security and livelihoods, WASH, health, Peace building and conflict mitigation. The organization’s mandate is therefore, “to empower people and communities economically and socially to enable women/girls, men/boys, youth and people with disabilities to realize their full potential.’’

In the last quarter from June‒August SPEDP has implemented a number of activities both in South Sudan and Uganda based on the 2017 Annual Work Plan in line with the 2016–2020 Strategic Plan (SP) aligned to its Strategic Objectives (SO) and achieved the following outputs/outcomes.
