Action for People In Need Organization – (APINO) is a Not-for-Profit, Non-Political and Non-Government Organization (NGO) founded in 2016 in South Sudan.
APINO is registered in South Sudan by Relief & Rehabilitation Commission (RRC) as National Non-Government Organization.

APINO is engaged in various programs including Peace Building and Trauma Healing, Access to Justice, Education, Livelihood and Economic Empowerment, Reproductive Health and Forum Theatre performances.
Considering the increasingly level of poverty, rampant conflicts among communities, poor health services, high prevalence rate of HIV/AIDS, limited access to education, limited economic opportunities, APINO works to implement initiatives that support the most vulnerable individuals in the communities.
APINO aims to empower people through promoting Healthy living, access to Education, increase economic opportunities and support to peaceful co-existence among communities.
APINO is guided by the following core values of competency, drive for results, respect and dignity for humanity, transparency and accountability, faith and love for all. Our ethical code of conduct encompasses gender responsiveness and equity, resilience and upholding individual rights while implementing our program and interventions in South Sudan and beyond.
