Rule of Law and Social Justice
South Sudan a product of the Sudan has been having incessant violence in the nature of political turmoil or civil wars that have spawn unfortunately a vicious cycle of hatred, revenge, or genocide.
As a result, many communities in Eastern Equatoria, which is our main operational zone, live in heightened state of fear, resentment, distrust and violence. Therefore, to address the issues of ethnicity or tribalism and violence, OPRD works with religious, government and civic leaders in addition to women and youth with skills in conflict resolution, mediation and peace building.
Specifically, OPRD engages in alternative projects such as stopping cattle rustling, forgiveness and reconciliation, defense and promotion of human rights, trauma healing and campaign for social justice. Indeed, we believe as broken relationships are reconciled and wounds of violent hatred healed through real forgiveness, the cycle of hatred, revenge and violence will change to beneficial peace and sustained security enjoyed by society.
