South Sudan: Savings groups empower women during crises
Around the world, women and girls are disproportionately affected by crises. Without access to education, training, or the ability to save money, it is almost impossible for women to lift themselves out of poverty. As a result, in South Sudan 4 out of 5 women lives under the poverty line. We are convinced that by strengthening women's economic empowerment and independence, we can strengthen their ability and resilience to prepare for, respond to, and recover from crises.
