1. Recognition From United Nations High Commissioner For Refugees For Our Humanitarian Support to Beneficiaries.
“In nation building, everyone has their own role to play,” says returned refugee Angelina Nyajima.
Angelina founded a nonprofit, called Hope Restoration South Sudan, to implement peace building and women’s empowerment projects, after spending 15 years in refugee camps in Ethiopia and Kenya. The NGO increased security for women and girls in Leer, Unity, by renovating three roads overgrown by brush, that had become a haven for criminals. Right now, Hope Restoration is building a traditional courthouse to support efforts to peacefully settle familial and community disputes.
Others’ contributions are more low key – but no less impactful. Isaac Mabok, an IDP living in a UN Protection of Civilians (POC) site in Malakal, Upper Nile, is helping to build a better future for South Sudan by modeling resilience and hard work for his seven children. He refused to give up after losing his leg to a gunshot wound and consequently, his livelihood as a farmer. Instead, he found a vocational training program and picked up a new skill.
