Fashoda Youth Forum understands that Sudan is presently in a fragile but important transition from relief to rehabilitation and development following the signing of the historic Comprehensive Peace Agreement on January 9, 2005. The project incorporated relief activities into the rehabilitation and development initiatives, creating a fluid community-based approach to implementation that ensures all inputs contribute to sustainable, visible long-term results for communities.
Although Fashoda Youth Forum recognizes that there is a high cost to operating in Upper Nile state compared with other areas in Southern Sudan, the project has been designed in such a way so as to ensure that the highest proportion of funds can be dedicated to direct inputs to the targeted communities. Where possible, supplies and equipment will be purchased from local sources and local staff will be hired and their capacity built to perform their roles accountably and efficiently. Fashoda Youth Forum has a long term relationships with the communities, cultivated through years of project implementation in the area. These relationships form the base for very active involvement of beneficiaries in tailoring the proposed activities in ways that best empower them and ensure their ownership over the process and its achievements. Local government authorities was actively involved in leading the annual planning workshops for the project’s implementation; furthermore, the project staff worked closely with them to implement the activities, training them through the process and ensuring they have the skills to manage and oversee the provision of services in their communities in years to come.
