CARE Sudan - Kenya

The ongoing developments in Sudan have made it a priority target for OMPT’s intervention. In fall of 2018, OMPT began conversations to work with CARE International to conduct workshops in Sudan, first in Darfur and then later in Khartoum. However, due to the political instability in the region, we and our partners decided to relocate our workshop to Kenya.

The workshop in Nairobi addressed two key projects that CARE is working on in Sudan. The first was a WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) project aimed at improving water, sanitation, hygiene. The second was focused on strengthening civil society and was in partnership with the Every Voice Counts Programme, which aimed to contribute to inclusive and effective governance processes in fragile settings.

Our workshop is critical in preventing the spread of diseases within the displaced communities, ensuring accountability for the government, and prompting civilian participation in government. CARE Sudan staff learned to create videos promoting healthy behaviors and demonstrating how civilians can influence government policy. The videos will now be used in two separate trainings by CARE Sudan staff:

  1. The WASH videos will be shown to refugees via mobile projectors in the Darfur region will the goal of improving WASH in refugee camps.

  2. The civil society videos will be shown via mobile projectors to youth and women from pastoral and agricultural communities in two localities in South Darfur and two localities in East Darfur.

OMPT is excited and humbled to be a part of making a difference in such a turbulent time and place, and our hopes are high for a more peaceful and democratic Sudan in the near future.
