Inside South Sudan: Peace and Gender Based- Violence

WPCN-Canada spoke with Adit Abit, founder of the South Sudan Women’s Foundation (SSWF). Adit has been involved in various peace initiatives and community programs in British Columbia before she began her Master’s at the University of Ottawa. Adit started the South Sudan Women’s Foundation as a means of involving South Sudanese women in being active participants in nation building. Her passion for gender equality fuelled the start of the foundation. The goal is to lift the voices of women, to challenge war, social inequality, and poverty. She hopes to establish collaborative resource mobilization initiatives for the betterment of the South Sudanese community both locally and globally.
