Eve Organization Uganda was established in 2017 in response to the high number of displacement of South Sudanese after the 2016 violence in South Sudan. Uganda hosts the biggest number of South Sudanese refugees to date
Violence against women (VAW) is widespread in South Sudan. Sexual violence has particularly increased precariously with the return to conflict in December 2013 and 2016 due to rampant impunity among the armed forces
peace and social cohesion
The long decades of war with Sudan coupled with the December 2013 conflict in South Sudan has destroyed the social fabric of the country. It has left the country deeply divided.
The South Sudan Household Health Survey of 2010 (SSHHS) shows that 41% of households in South Sudan are headed by women, only 2.1 percent of South Sudanese households have water on their premises;
COVID-19 and its Impact
COVID-19 started in China in late 2019 and quickly became a globally shared crisis. The virus was first confirmed in South Sudan on April 5th 2020,not so long after the formation of the unity government on 22nd of February. The formation of the government was marred by several challenges such as inter-communal conflict and cattle raiding with communal violence in Lakes, Warrap and Unity States, the arrival of dessert locusts in several counties in Eastern, Central and Western Equatoria and Lakes posing an extra threat to food security and livelihood. The outbreak of the pandemic further places South Sudan in a more vulnerable situation
Is PEACE not for us all-Where are the Women?
South Sudan’s history is marked by revolutions and civil wars. Every South Sudanese dream of peace and longs to experience it in their life time. For decades now, all we have known is war, killings, rape, displacement, fear, hunger and poverty. At the heart of these conflicts is a combination of root causes such as identity, religion, ethnicity, language, discrimination, unresolved historical grievances, inequality in political participation and distribution of resources.
We had a dream to accomplish

Moses, who is also nicked named ‘he for she’ was speaking to participants of the Young Women Alumni Conference which brought together the Incubator alumni and a number of other young leaders in April 2020.
The Incubator restored my hope and Confidence
