KAIROS’ Women, Peace and Security partners include grassroots women’s organizations in Colombia, Palestine/Israel, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and South Sudan who are building sustainable, just and inclusive peace with ecological justice.
Over the last six years, the KAIROS Women of Courage: Women, Peace and Security program has grown into an innovative, partner-led and transformative initiative enabling partners to successfully respond to gender-based violence, address the impact of militarized conflict and environmental degradation on women, and strengthen the capacity of women to protect human rights and the environment.
Global Affairs Canada is providing matching funds to this program, making it possible for these KAIROS partner organizations to greatly expand their capacity and increase their impact.
Every dollar you donate to these four Women of Courage: Women, Peace and Security partners or to the overall program will be matched by $3 in funding from Global Affairs Canada.

South Sudan Council of Churches (SSCC)
“I do advocacy on issues to do with gender-based violence and inclusion of women and youth in peace and governance, and also advocacy on climate change which has become a big issue as thousands of South Sudanese are affected by floods with no access to food and safe drinking water. This has been challenging as these areas are inaccessible and they lie within the scope of our work on conflict resolution. This is because there is no sufficient early warning system and also because mobility has become a challenge.”Juan Rachael Roberto, Advocacy Coordinator, South Sudan Council of Churches (SSCC), South Sudan.
KAIROS has been working with SSCC since its foundation in 2013. Before that, the ecumenical coalitions that preceded KAIROS had partnered with the Sudan Council of Churches since the early 1970's.
