The purpose of this project is to contribute to stabilization and peace within Sudan by strengthening child protection and basic services for conflict-affected boys and girls aged 10-18. It also supports the release and reintegration of these children into their communities while preventing future recruitment of children into armed forces and groups. This project also aims to increase the knowledge, skills and resources among at-risk girls and boys, in order to better equip them to protect themselves, cope with their vulnerability, and make productive contributions to their society. Finally, the project aims to reinforce the ability of targeted government ministries and non-government organizations to deliver services to children, including basic services (education and health) and child protection services (release, reintegration and prevention of (re)recruitment into armed forces and groups).

Results & Indicators

Expected Results


Achieved Results

Results as of the end of the project (June 2013) include: (1) more than 19,000 children have been released from armed forces and groups and provided with reintegration services such as income-generating activities; (2) more than 105,000 conflict-affected children received psychosocial support through recreational activities, youth groups, schools and child-friendly spaces; (3) 21,000 officers and commanders from various armed forces and groups have been trained in child rights–especially the prevention of child recruitment and child protection–and child protection messages reached more than five million citizens; (3) in Sudan, a major participatory review of the implementation of the National Strategy for the Reintegration of Children from Armed Groups and Forces has been commissioned in Darfur; and a national strategic action plan for a free and inclusive birth registration system was developed, which has supported authorities in realizing the rights of hundreds of thousands of children to birth registration in conflict areas; (4) in eight states in South Sudan, including in refugee camps, 207 Child Protection and Child Rights actors were trained to monitor and report on violations, which has enabled them to successfully report cases of violations affecting 35,188 children; and (5) approximately 785,000 children and community members living in locations heavily contaminated by landmines and explosive remnants of war were provided with information and education on the risks of mines and injury prevention. This has contributed to: (1) improving conflict-affected children’s access to protection, reintegration and basic services; (2) improving knowledge, skills and awareness on children’s rights and child protection issues among government agencies and ministries, members of the armed forces/groups, children and the public; and (3) the prevention of future recruitment of more children into armed forces and groups.
