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.
