Our Mission

 

HOPE for Ariang partners with local communities to provide inclusive access to quality education and opportunities for children and youth through a holistic approach.

OurValues

  • Inclusiveness

    HOPE’s programs reflect the organization’s determination to break down the social and cultural barriers that prevent women and girls from participating in community development. HOPE is able to cater to the needs of adults and youth by incorporating different types of learning programs that encompass informal vocational skills training and formal classroom learning.

  • Holistic Approach

    HOPE understands the interconnectedness of school and community; therefore, it is involved in providing access to resources such as wells, electricity, and health clinics. These are important elements in the process of building a school that can unite the community and educates South Sudan’s future leaders.

  • Collaboration

    HOPE works with those it serves and other stakeholders to accomplish more than it could on its own.

  • Integrity and Accountability

    HOPE strives to apply the highest levels of ethics, transparency and professionalism in its work. HOPE is accountable to its donors, the public, and the people it serves.

  • Teamwork

    We collaborate with link-minded partners responsibly and with respect.

  • High expectation and positive impact

    We set expectations to reach our goals of creating a lasting impact.

Who We Serve

We serve the people of Ariang village and neighboring rural communities. We place special attention on overcoming the economic and societal barriers that affect girls and recognizes the importance of providing education to reduce the gender gap. We seek to create a sustainable model in Ariang that can be replicated to empower people in other regions of the country.

Where We Work

We operate in a rural region of post-conflict South Sudan. The Republic of South Sudan gained independence from Sudan on July 9, 2011 as the outcome of a 2005 peace deal that ended Africa’s longest-running civil war.The nation has been destroyed by more than two decades years of civil war with the North, which has resulted in the deaths of more than 2.5 million people and the displacement of more than six million. Today, South Sudan continues to fight its own civil war that has had a devastating impact on growth and development in the World’s newest nation.

Ariang, South Sudan

Ariang is a rural area located in the state of Gogrial in the northwest region of the country. Currently, people’s livelihoods and access to education are threatened by gender inequity, political instability, poverty, malnutrition, lack of access to health care and weak institutions. In addition to these nation-wide problems, rural villages like Ariang lack adequate roads and social facilities.
