About I CAN South Sudan


How do you begin to heal a war-torn community?
I CAN South Sudan is a registered, Refugee-Led Community-Based Organization (CBO) operating in the Bidibidi Refugee Settlement, Yumbe District, Northern Uganda.
We use social and musical education to help a particularly vulnerable group: unaccompanied refugee children.
Our aim is three-folds:
  • To give these children meaning, purpose and hope in their lives
  • To develop their skills and talents for the future
  • To provide them with a voice to express their trauma and their desire for peace.
We use musical coaching with an emphasis on group work to build the childrens’ confidence and to create friendships across the tribal divide that led to the South Sudanese civil war. Storytelling and song are important elements in South Sudanese culture, so the musical program focuses on the preservation of traditional stories, songs, and musical traditions. This provides the children with a link to their own culture, and preserves a sense of normality: South Sudanese evenings often involve children learning songs and stories. By teaching across the usual boundaries of tribal culture, the aim is to support Peace-Building efforts, fostering understanding and empathy across a cultural divide.

I CAN was founded in 2017 by refugee youths Stephen Wandu Bimo, Seme Ludanga Faustino, and Kyobutungi Angela. It was initially funded with a Good Will support grant from Misereor Germany, which enabled us to help 20 children over 6 months. We have since developed our program and are now helping 100 children a year in Refugee Settlement in Uganda.

With the ongoing implementation of Revitalized Peace Agreement in South Sudan, I CAN South Sudan has registered in South Sudan as a National None Governmental Organization (NNGO) and has expanded its work to Juba, Tambura, Yambio and Ibba in South Sudan with the aim of reaching out to children and single mothers orphaned and affected by the recent civil war, to heal them of trauma and to support the integration of returnees into the community. We are in process to establish our services in other states across South Sudan.

I CAN South Sudan is working in Uganda under the Department of Child Protection OPM (Office of the Prime Minister Refugee Desk) Bidibidi. I CAN South Sudan is working in Uganda in Partnership with Misereor Germany and Oxfam

I CAN South Sudan is a member of Children Music Network in USA, Member of West Nile Humanitarian Platform and Member of Network of South Sudan Civil Society Organizations in Uganda.

In South Sudan, I CAN South Sudan is working in partnership with Caritas South Sudan and is a member of Network for Civil Society Organizations (NeCSO’s).

Goal 

To create a favorable environment for the holistic development of children, build unity, love and harmony among Children for a peaceful South Sudan

Strategic Plan



The project is intended to run for five years initially, over three phases. Phase one is currently funded.

Phase One Strategic Plan June 2018-November 2018 (Completed)
  • Identify unaccompanied refugee children with musical talents.  Such talents may include an aptitude for music, as well as existing instrumental skills. I CAN South Sudan together with the refugee communities at Bidibidi Refugee Camp identified and selected the 20 children in a singing audition
  • Provide opportunities for recording the children’s musical and storytelling efforts, in a studio environment.
  • Record (using video) a promotional single written and performed by the children, and distribute this as widely as possible.
  • Develop a YouTube channel and links with local, regional, national, and international broadcasters to showcase the talents of these children and highlight their plight
Project Title for 2019: Children Peace Building Club (CPBC)
Children Peace Building Club is a second project proposal by I CAN South Sudan, a Refugee led Community Based Organization operating in Bidibidi Refugee Settlement with the aim of engaging unaccompanied South Sudan refugee children in social and musical activities so as to heal the children of trauma. We give the children a meaning, sense, purpose and hope for their lives, develop their skills in art and music for the future and give them voice to express their trauma and desire for peace in South Sudan

Created in 2017 by refugee youth trainers and teachers Stephen Wandu Bimo, Seme Ludanga and Kyobutungi Angela a Ugandan by national who have compassion to support refugees, I CAN initially received a Good Will support of Euro 5,000 from Misereor to help 20 children over 6 months. The Charity's program includes musical coaching with the emphasis on group work, building individual confidence and creating links of friendship between the children who come from both sides of the tribal conflict in South Sudan. Children are also taken on 'treat' outings together to put smile on their faces and give them positive experiences outside of the refugee camp

The musical program focuses in part on the preservation of South Sudanese stories, songs, and musical traditions. As refugees in Uganda, the children's schooling teaches them songs and poetry of a different country. While this is potentially a very enriching experience, it is also important that they do not lose contact with the stories and poetry in their own South Sudanese traditions. This is not just about cultural preservation but also about comfort: Storytelling is an important part of South Sudanese culture and children sing songs as they play and gather in the evening to tell stories (known as 'Pature' in Zande culture). Many of these have been passed down for generations. I CAN South Sudan aim to preserve these traditions in an inclusive way so that the children are taught the practices and stories of variety of tribes as peace building efforts

Objectives
  • To build peace among the South Sudan refugee communities in Uganda
  • To instill forgiveness and reconciliation among the warring South Sudan warring tribes in Uganda
  • To heal the unaccompanied South Sudan refugee children, their guardians, widow and widowers of trauma
  • To train and build economic capacity of the vulnerable refugees
  • To develop the talent of children in social and musical art and give them voice to express their desire for peace in South Sudan
Phase two Strategic Plan 2019 
  • Secure funding to extend the project for a further 12 months, and to include a further cohort of 30 children per year, so that a total of 50 children are involved. 
  • Involve unaccompanied Refugee Children in art and drawing activities ( Supported by Pam Donkin www.plantingseedsoflove.com )
