The Nile Care Advocacy for Peace and Development (NILECAPD) is a South Sudanese humanitarian and social justice organization. Founded on June 14, 2014, but was legally registered under the Relief and Rehabilitation Commission (RRC) of South Sudan in 2018. We are dedicated and committed to the prevention of conflicts and ensuring peaceful co-existence in South Sudan.
How it all Began!
NILECAPD was founded by Mr. Bayak Chuol Puoch, a humanitarian and peace activist dedicated to peacebuilding and humanitarian assistance initiatives that culminate in peace and conflict prevention.
The need to establish NILECAPD resulted from the war-related conflicts in 2013 in the capital city of Juba, South Sudan, which divided the country along ethnic lines.
Mr. Bayak initially invited friends, community leaders and Jiokow residents for a lengthy and constructive meeting held under a tree in Jiokow village, Upper Nile State.
Consecutive meetings were later held with other neighbouring communities and states. A decision was reached to establish and register an active non-for-profit organization that will advocate for peace, unity and cooperation among the South Sudanese while promoting economic growth and development.
To advocate for and protect the rights of vulnerable people and promote equitable economic growth across the South Sudan Community.
Transforming lives through peace initiatives, justice and social change to the most vulnerable people in South Sudan.
To ensure communal resiliency, peace and economic development, we are committed to helping needy and vulnerable South Sudanese citizens through capacity building, advocacy and mitigation initiatives.
