IGI South Sudan was registered by the interim administration as a civil society organisation in 2009. Since then Sudan has become a fully independent state.
After decades of civil war in Sudan, the Autonomous Government of Southern Sudan was formed by the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in 2005. The capital is Juba. In 2011, it became an independent state as South Sudan, with a population of approximately 12 million people, many of whom have become Christians during the civil war period. Much of Sudan’s oil reserves are in the southern area. Social infrastructure is relatively poor, with very limited provision for health care. It faces huge challenges due to lack of infrastructure and lawless culture inherited from decades of constant war with the North.
IGI South Sudan has project proposals ready, but is currently expanding its membership and setting up an office in Juba.
