About the organisation

Organisation Name : Sudd Foundation

The organisation is presently based in Braybrook, Melbourne.  It seeks to ensure all Australians from South Sudan are active, positive, accepted participants in the broader community.  This will be achieved through addressing priority areas of unmet need in the South Sudanese community, with specific focus on current issues that are creating negative impacts on the wider community. The organisation will also seek to more broadly promote integration, create positive partnerships and build capacity by co-creating and funding support services and opportunities for the South Sudanese community. The organisation’s top-line strategic goals are:

•             Reduce youth crime and infringement incidence

•             Reduce vulnerability of community members through education and connection

•             Increase community integration and acceptance for Australians from South Sudan

•             Increase rates of employment and community participation

The majority of the preparatory work to set up the organisation has been done.  Community meetings have been held. The Constitution has been passed. A Strategic Plan has been completed.  Initial funding has been obtained from the Victorian Department of Multicultural Affairs however further funds are dependent on a restructure of the Board.  The government has requested that the Board be representative of the tribal groups in Victoria, contain as much of a gender balance as possible, and have members of non-South Sudanese background in a co-share role (co-chair, co-treasurer etc). 

The tribal requirement has been met, with representatives of the Dinka, Nuer and Equatoria region are now on the Board.
