Mission Statement

Inspired by the 2004 Rome Congress on Consecrated Life, Passion for Christ Passion for Humanity, this project, Solidarity with South Sudan (SSS or Solidarity), is an act of solidarity between religious institutes of men and women, which are members of the Unions of Superiors General (USG and UISG), and the Church in South Sudan under the direction of the Sudan Catholic Bishops’ Conference (SCBC).

After decades of civil war, when the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) was signed in January 2005, the bishops of South Sudan invited the USG/UISG to consider the needs of their people. Following a consultative process it became clear that projects related to education, health and pastoral care1 are needed if the goals of the CPA are to be achieved.

Solidarity with South Sudan is a project that seeks to promote the Kingdom of God in partnership with the local church and the people of Sudan through the establishment and development of teacher and health training institutes and those pastoral services deemed most urgent.
