Oxfam is an independent organization, registered as a charity in England and Wales (no.202918) and Scotland (SC039042), Oxfam GB is a member of Oxfam International, with partners, volunteers, supporters and staff of many nationalities. We work on a global basis to overcome poverty and suffering. You can see more of our work on www.oxfam.org.uk

1. Background

Oxfam GB is a development, relief and campaigning organisation dedicated to finding lasting solutions to poverty and suffering around the world. We believe that every human being is entitled to a life of dignity and opportunity; and we work with poor communities, local partner organisations, volunteers, and supporters to help this become a reality.

The population of South Sudan continues to face severe challenges in terms of meeting basic needs and future prospects. The cycles of violent conflict compounded by an array of multifaceted challenges and political instability in has seriously affected socioeconomic development and compromised basic services infrastructure including education for girls and boys, and livelihood opportunities for women and men in South Sudan. The country, which only gained independence in July 2011, has one of the highest poverty rates in the world with more than 80% of the population living on the equivalent of less than $1per day income.

Food insecurity, a long-term issue for South Sudan, has worsened and continues to rise with estimated 6.96 million (61%) likely to face phase 3 out which 1.82 million people faced emergency phase 4 (IPC June, 2019). The conflict and displacement of populations has had an impact on agricultural production and livestock keeping, which the majority of people depend on for their livelihood.

The effects of climate change add to South Sudan’s food security crisis. Since 1980, decreasing rainfall has been accompanied by rapid increases in temperature, which is making ‘normal’ years effectively drier, this increase in dry spells as well as floods has further diminished their assets and their capacity to withstand shocks

Public spending on education was just 4.2% of the total annual budget in 2017/18 despite Government promises to spend 10%. Most education financing goes to staff (mainly teacher) salaries, state transfers, goods and services, but not investments in education infrastructure or quality of education.

South Sudanese women and girls facing multiple impact as Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) is being used as weapon of war and families giving their daughters in marriage in exchange of the cattle as bride price to overcome poverty.

Based on the context analysis above and on the existing experience of working in the target areas and with the local partners , The project funded by SIDA has been designed to address the imminent education crisis of South Sudan leaving millions of children, youth and adults without knowledge and skills, Especially young people and girls/women out-of-school will benefit from the activities as vehicles for change, the lack of qualified teachers with competences in gender and conflict sensitive education, poor livelihood opportunities induced by conflict and climate change, specifically related to subsistence agriculture and livestock rearing and Women face protection issues and have limited opportunities to participate in decision making and economic activities

2. Introduction

With an objective to strengthen resilience through access to education, skills development and improving livelihoods and a strong focus on targeting girls and women, a particularly vulnerable group in South Sudan, the proposed intervention aims to contribute to key objectives under Sweden’s Strategy for Development Cooperation with South Sudan for 2021 – 2025, namely: 1) peaceful and inclusive societies, and 2) basic public services and livelihood opportunities. The three cross-cutting themes of gender equality, climate/environment and conflict sensitivity have been taken into consideration in the design. In addition, the proposed project will support Sweden’s and South Sudan’s contribution to achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The complex context in South Sudan calls for linkages and synergies in a One Programme Approach, which is defined by Oxfam in the following way “Oxfam’s one programme approach brings together our humanitarian, development and influencing programming to make a joined-up system capable of addressing current crises while delivering deep, systemic and long-term change at scale.

In this project the approach requires a transformation of traditional education interventions to a practice where different alternative education initiatives (ALP, functional literacy) are adapted to the needs of local communities and individuals, and integrated and implemented together with agriculture, livelihoods and technical vocational skills development programming.

The project designed also to draw on thinking around the ‘triple nexus’ (humanitarian – development – peacebuilding) by applying a conflict sensitive approach, which enables Oxfam and partners to adapt activities to the changing context. Concrete activities such as inclusion of youth and women in social dialogue around peacebuilding are intended to strengthen this strand of work.

Overall Objective of the project: Improved resilience through gender and conflict sensitive education and skill-based solutions for sustainable livelihoods among the target girls, boys, women and men.

Outcome 1: Conflict-affected adolescents, youth, women and men have improved knowledge and skills through safe, quality and gender responsive education and skills development.

Outcome 2: Strengthened inclusive participation and gender responsive local leadership to ensure resilient education systems and sustainable livelihoods.

Activities contributing to Outcome 1 Conflict-affected adolescents, youth, women and men to improve knowledge and skills through safe, quality and gender responsive education and skills development.

The project will offer learning opportunities for adolescent and youth in different ways according to their level of education. One of them is the Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) which is an opportunity for out of school adolescent and youth to finalize primary education. ALP is a condensed primary four-year course and recognized by the MoGEI as part of the Alternative Education System (AES).

The project will support girls in upper primary to continue their education and avoid early drop-out through targeted activities and more broadly through the project’s gender sensitive lens.

For skills development activities, Oxfam and partners will provide a combination of literacy, numeracy, life and technical skills development modules. Participants will have an option to continue skills development or applying for an accompanying package of a small startup grant.

Activities contributing to Outcome 2: Strengthened inclusive participation and gender responsive local leadership to ensure resilient education systems and sustainable livelihoods.

Given the nature of the proposed project, capacity development will focus on community based structures and local authorities within the education system – schools and learning centers Other stakeholders such as religious and village leaders will be consulted and involved where relevant.

The activities will strengthen existing structures to understand their role, the tools and processes related to their area of work as well as how to support community engagement, social accountability, risk reduction, and promoting social cohesion

The project will through learning centres both for accelerated learning, literacy training and skills development increase the community capacity to responds to shocks through community managed disaster risk reduction action planning .

Establishment of Village Saving Groups will be a complementary activity to beneficiaries of the other livelihood activities to encourage a culture of savings among groups and create Village Community Banks (VICOBA)

Relating to increasing productivity and production, the project will provide basic seeds and tools, mobilize communities to form producer groups to increase production and enable for easy delivery of extension services, construction of basic storage structures for reducing post-harvest losses and establish value-chains and increase farmers’ access to market, increase capacity of producer groups on better agronomic practices, business skills (linking to the financial, numeracy and literacy training).

The project will cover a period of four years from July’2021 to May’2025. And implementation areas will be Pibor, Jube and Rumbek in South Sudan. The total grant for five years period is SEK 85,494,235 ( USD9,906,330) including ICR allocation to executive Affiliate ( OXFAM IBIS). The project has been design ed to implement with national organizations.
