As Sudan split into two nations, we led capacity-building workshops to support a network of women leaders from both Sudan and South Sudan as they planned for the change.

Sudanese Women's Coalition

Karuna Center’s work in Sudan focused on issues of women’s rights in the context of South Sudan’s secession from the nation. After a 20-year separatist war against the Sudanese government and a popular referendum, South Sudan became an independent nation on July 9, 2011. The civil war killed more than 2.5 million people and displaced more than twice as many; serious challenges remained for people on both sides of this new international boundary.

NOTE: The Karuna Center no longer administers programs in Sudan.
