Sustainable Supplies Initiative
The Sustainable Supplies Initiative was started as a response to the civil war that broke out in 2013. While we were able to provide some small humanitarian assistance in 2014, our goals continue to be long-term solutions. The boat is our sustained focus at this time.
Help us Get the Boat in the Water!
The economic crisis in South Sudan has made it exceedingly difficult to finish the boat that Jalle set out to build in 2014. Together with Jalle, we succeeded in getting the body of the 70-person boat built, but stalled out when we could not obtain a motor for a reasonable and stable price due to the war economy. In December 2017 we found out that we’re losing our storage for the boat in Juba. Now we have to get the boat operational and in the water. Fast. We need to get the boat operational by March 1, 2018 which means we need to have the cash ready to go by February 19, 2018. Read more here:
To get the boat in the water, we need $19,500. Only $8,500 to go.
History of the Sustainable Supplies Initiative
In April 2014 Rebuild South Sudan launched its second program: The Sustainable Supplies Initiative. The conflict that erupted in December 2013 has led the world’s newest nation, South Sudan, into yet another crisis. At that time we could not work on the school, but we also could not stand by and do nothing. We collected funds to purchase emergency supplies for survival during the beginning of the new civil war and as an offering of hope.
Unfortunately many people in South Sudan were displaced during the initial fighting in late 2013 and early 2014. This fighting caused rural South Sudanese Villages across the nation to miss the planting season creating severe food shortages as people return to their villages. The Sustainable Supplies Initiative is designed to provide not just food but tools to build a food system in the midst of a looming famine. Jalle is located on the Nile, which can be used both for food and transportation with the right tools in hand. With the relationships and presence we already have as an organization, we are in a unique position to provide assistance. Please consider donating to this urgent cause as we seek to encourage and empower the people of South Sudan in the midst of distress.
