Saferworld is an independent non-governmental organisation that works to prevent violent conflict and build safer lives.

Saferworld has been working on conflict prevention issues in South Sudan since 2002 and established an office in Juba in 2007. With partners we now work in eight states across South Sudan, where we work with community members, civil society, local authorities and ‘hard to reach’ groups such as women, young people, and non-state security providers. Together, we identify and address safety and peace-building needs that are specific to the different communities. Our work in South Sudan is currently funded by the Netherlands and UK Governments plus the UN.
