Founded in 2001 by South Sudanese in Nairobi, Kenya, the organization started operating in Upper Nile state in 2003 and later in Central Equatoria. NRDC comprises local networks of young women and men from conflict, post-conflict, and vulnerable communities in South Sudan. Presently, NRDC operates in the states of Upper Nile, Rumbek and Central Equatoria and has a head office in Juba Thongpiny, Kololo Road opposite the TM Lion Hotel, with sub-offices in Malakal, Kodok, Aburoc and Tonga. The founders of NRDC share similar challenges, inspirations, values, and a common destiny and have founded the organization as a vehicle to bring forth meaningful change both among the membership and the wider South Sudanese society bedeviled by years of conflict, marginalization, and a host of vicious emergencies! We believe that, in spite of the present chaos and hopelessness in the country, South Sudan will once again emerge as a land of immense wealth, justice and lasting peace.
