Rehabilitating and developing the social and economic infrastructure destroyed by war.


There are 1.2 million people in the Nuba Mountain region of Sudan. For decades they have strived to maintain dignified lives in the face of marginalisation and devastating civil war. Since 1993, Nuba Relief, Rehabilitation and Development Organization (NRRDO) has worked to serve them all.

Now, 1.2 million people find themselves, once again, living with conflict. Many civilian lives are being lost through the use of long-range missiles, shelling and more sophisticated aerial attacks. Over 500,000 have fled their homes to the mountains, neighbouring countries and refugee camps. Of those who remain, 300,000 are estimated to be in critical need of emergency humanitarian assistance, while all struggle to maintain livelihoods and lack access to basic services such as health. 80,000 children suffer from a broken education system….

Yusif Kuwa day

On March 31st many in Nuba celebrate Yusif Kuwa day. Yusif Kuwa was the primary founder of the rebellion against the Sudan government in the Nuba Mountains. His life was dedicated to equality and freedom inSudan. He was an example of the Nuban resilience.

Speeches, songs and traditional dancing took place around his grave site in Nuba. The current SPLM-N Governor took a moment to look at his friend’s grave as he pondered the struggle before giving his speech.

NRRDO interventions

  1. Emergency Humanitarian support ;  Save lives and protect Livelihoods and improve food security. Cash transfer, food distribution, NFI distribution, Protection and disaster risk reduction, seeds and tools provision, groups income generating schemes, blacksmith support, water supply, animal health service.  Currently 300,000 people are in dire need emergency humanitarian relief. In addition to food and Non-Food Item kits, continuing a massive, regionally-innovative cash distribution programme – which saw $2.5 million given to 12,000 households last year – will contribute to saving lives. Self-reliance must be built at the same time through measures to stabilise farming and household level food production
  2. Peace Building and Governance;  The Nuba People’s Conference collectively defined key political, socio-economic and cultural resolutions. Now, we will strengthen governance institutions and train leaders to make sure aspirations are met. Civic education will seek to tackle underlying causes of conflict  with in the Arabs and the Nuban.
  3. Primary health: Improved  access to basic health services.  In the context of severe drug and health personnel shortages and the bombing of hospitals, NRRDO is distributing emergency health kits to clinics. We need to rehabilitate 177 centres and build the capacity to respond to disease-outbreaks and soaring malnutrition.
  4. Education:  Improved access to quality primary and secondary education in Nuba. Beyond relief, education is the Nuba people’s number one priority. They will not accept another lost generation after the last war left 78% of the population illiterate. NRRDO run 179 primary schools for almost 40,000 pupils. But this still leaves a further 40,000 children out of school. We need to stabilize, then scale up, and bring a sense of normality to childhoods that are anything but
  5. Gender and Women development: Inclusion and active participation of women, girls, men and youth on issues affecting their lives in Nuba Mountains. Women bear the brunt of war through marginalization, increased care demands and inability to earn income. We will provide psycho-social support and business training, promote adult literacy and gender rights
  6. Voice of Community Radio: Improved  coverage, scope  and quality of radio programs on education , health and other social issues.
