From March to August 2016, JCCP implemented a project to improve inter-ethnic relations through group vegetable growing; getting together IDPs and host community members to grow vegetables at a school in Juba, South Sudan.
The project site, Gumbo IDP camp, is located on the outskirts of Juba, the capital of South Sudan. The camp currently plays host to 3,500 IDPs, who have fled to the camp to escape domestic conflict zones, particularly those in the northern and southern parts of the country.
The safety of women and children is threatened in the Mathare area of Kenya. Women and children are vulnerable to constant disputes caused by crimes and tribal conflicts. Therefore, anti-crime patrolling parties are working in order to protect their safety.
Training for anti-crime patrolling parties
