Our Programs

Peace and war are the most difficult challenges of human experience in life. Conflict and peace have occupied the human mind and there is need in search for stable human communities. The search for human development has been met by various approaches to quell violent conflict in societies. South Sudanese people had so many expectations after independence however; things fall apart in 2013 when conflicts broke out in the capital Juba and later spill over across the country forcing half of the population to flee to the neighboring countries as refugees. According to UNHCR report as of 28th February 2018 the number of South Sudanese refugees living in Uganda have reached 2,437,293 Two million Four Hundred thirty Seven Thousand Two Hundred Ninety Three. ‘’PHCC Program’’ Action for people in Need Organization is implementing a combined program known as Peaceful & Healthy Community Campaign. This program includes outreach activities of Peace Building, Trauma Healing, Community Base Health Education (creating awareness on reproduction health issues including HIV AIDS) and go to school campaign for children to be in school. The PHCC activities are done through music dance and drama performance, public speaking, community dialogue and drama acting. On health care program, we do it with collaborating with other health institutions example Kajo Keji health training institute which sponsored community health education awareness.

Livelihood Program (Women Economic Empowerment Through Zero Interest on small scale business group loans).Reference to the UNSDG5 aimed at Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls, we are empowering women and girls by providing small scale business loans with zero interest to those women & girls with small scale business in the refugee camps and those back at home in Yei River State, South Sudan. The main aim is to empower women and girls by providing loans to boast their businesses, such loans goes for one financial year and our team do offer business skills and record keeping trainings for the selected groups.

Education for all children Program (disadvantages families) Education is very important tool for social societal change. To work for equity APINO is working hard to bridge the gap by mobilizing some funds to help those children from disadvantaged families and those who fled conflicts in South Sudan without parents. Currently we are sponsoring 10 children at royal school in Ofua zone 3 in Rhino Camp Refugee Settlement. We also supported the school with scholastic materials in the year 2017.
