    1. Background and Context
      Norwegian Church Aid (NCA) is an ecumenical, diaconal, humanitarian and non-profit Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) mandated by churches and Christian organizations in Norway to work for global justice, by empowering the poor and challenging the wealthy and powerful. Together with our constituency and our partners, NCA commits to the vision: Together for a Just World. Based on the Christian faith, NCA works for the benefit of the poor, destitute and oppressed – regardless of gender, race, political opinion or religion.
      NCA started operations in South Sudan in 1972, providing long term development and humanitarian assistance. In the current and next strategy period, the thematic focus is on Peacebuilding, Gender Based Violence, Climate Resilient WASH and Education, with a special emphasis on women and youth and Persons with Disabilities.

The overall development goal of the programme is ‘Persons with disabilities in South Sudan claim their rights and exert influence on matters that affect their lives & Girls and boys, women and men with disabilities complete inclusive and equitable quality education and benefit from lifelong learning opportunities’ in South Sudan (by the end of 2024).Together for Inclusion (TOFI) consortium has commissioned a mapping of Disabled People’s Organizations in South Sudan.
