WV South Sudan Office Background
World Vision South Sudan (WVSS) has been working in Sudan since 1972, starting first in the North, and then concentrating on Southern Sudan since 1989. Currently, the principle of WVSS’ work is to support the Sudanese people in their pursuit of “a just and lasting peace”.
WVSS’ mandate is working towards the empowerment of the Sudanese people, especially the children, to enjoy the benefits of peace including justice, basic human rights, access to essential services, and sustainable economic development.
For most of the projects the contractual partners are the WV Support Offices (SOs, located in the USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, Great Britain, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong and others) who are responsible for pre-financing and monitoring, while WVSS (the National Office) is the implementing partner. Currently three regional Programs namely Upper Nile, Warrap and Western Equatorial are responsible for networking and liaising with the beneficiaries and stakeholders as well as for implementing the project activities and completing field-level reporting to the WVSS National Office Headquarters in Juba.
The headquarters monitors project implementation and the overall fulfilment of objectives, prepares donor reports and sends them to the Support Offices for review and submission to the donor.
