The war lasted for 22 years and ended in January 2005. The country now needs rebuilding.

Location of Volunteer Projects in Sudan
Our volunteer jobs in Sudan are located in Juba and Aweil State in Southern Sudan. Aweil State borders the predominantly Muslim and Arab Northern Sudan, including Darfur. Darfur is the scene of the current military conflict and genocide.
Aweil and Juba are inhabited by black African Christians and traditionalists. The areas were severely affected by Sudanese government-sponsored slave raiding during the North-South Civil War.
Aweil State still experiences massive influx of displaced people fleeing the widespread violence in Darfur and Kordofan regions.
