Since then we have gained a broad portfolio of experience country-wide from our involvement in creating facilities for refugee communities, post-flood rehabilitation and reconstruction, community potable water supplies, irrigation and livestock watering systems, low-cost housing and rural access roads.
The scope of services we’ve provided ranges from environmental impact assessments and technical assistance to surveys, technical and economic studies and engineering designs.
We are managing the UKAID funded Girls’ Education South Sudan programme, which aims to improve the enrolment, retention and completion rates, as well as levels of learning achievement of 200,000 girls in primary and secondary schools. Our education specialists are working to achieve this through behaviour change communication, cash transfers to girls and their families, grants to schools and practical support to education managers and teachers.
We provided technical assistance to the South Sudan Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation preparing designs and tender documents for 45 separate works, supply and services contracts to build new water systems, sanitation facilities, offices, water laboratories and a 300 bed training centre in over 100 rural and urban communities across the country as well as 600 remote village boreholes. The US$30 million project is funded by the World Bank. We carried out the procurement, management and supervision of all these contracts as well as providing 35 local and international training courses to water departments in every state.
In each community, we worked with local stakeholders at all stages of project development. Some projects were co-financed by the community and we worked to develop new legal frameworks and contracts to enable this.
