Contexte Terre des hommes (Tdh) is the leading Swiss organisation for children’s aid. Since 1960, Tdh has helped build a better future for deprived children and their communities, making an impact with innovative and sustainable solutions. Active in more than 45 countries, Tdh works with local and international partners to develop and implement field projects which improve the daily lives of over 3 million children and their relatives, in the domains of health, protection and emergency relief. This engagement is financed by individual and institutional support, with administrative costs kept to a minimum. Tdh has been working in South Sudan since 2013. In 2016, following the clashes that took place in the Equatoria Region, Yei River State (Former Central Equatoria State) was identified as zone of major humanitarian concern. At the beginning of 2017, Tdh launched a program in Yei town to improve overall child protection outcomes through an integrated approach, including WASH, FSL and education projects. Tdh implements a full-scale child protection and psychosocial support project in Yei, aimed at supporting the most vulnerable children affected by the conflict, including unaccompanied and separated children, with case management, social services, direct and targeted support and capacity building of local child protection actors. The security context in Yei remains concerning and attacks against the civilian population in the rural area happen regularly – leading to displacements of populations and access issues for humanitarian workers. With this context in mind, Tdh will implement Education in Emergency programming in areas within Yei River State with identified needs of support for access to education and with little to no access to humanitarian assistance. The project will deliver a two-fold approach to teacher training, providing regular in-service training and supportive supervision for teachers, in addition to partnering with the Yei Teaching Training College to deliver formal training in pedagogical skills to untrained but active teachers. Tdh will ensure mainstreaming of child protection through training on appropriate context related prevention and response mechanisms for child protection risks. Tdh is also actively exploring new programming opportunities in new locations. Proposal development and assessments are on-going to anticipate a new base opening within 2019. This will present key opportunities to grow and diversify Tdh profile in South Sudan.
