  • Overview

    For more than three decades, the Near East Foundation has touched the lives of millions of disadvantaged people in the African nation of Sudan.

    As one of the few continuously operating international NGOs in the country, our projects are improving lives and communities through education, peace-building, business development, agriculture and natural resource management, climate adaptation, and health care.

     

    Creating Hope and Opportunity

    Since 1978, NEF has gained an unparalleled depth of knowledge about local communities and institutions, and the development challenges facing Sudan. Currently, a team of 20 highly trained staff members—all Sudanese—focus their efforts on three programmatic areas:

    • Building Peace through Economic Cooperation by providing those affected by war – including Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and ex-combatants – with training in business, natural resource, and conflict management skills that enable them to rebuild their communities economically and socially.
    • Improving Natural Resource Management and Environmental Sustainability through our work with communities in Darfur and gum arabic producers in North Kordofan, NEF helps individuals to adopt efficient techniques that improve the quantity and quality of their harvest, and protect and preserve natural resources.
    • Supporting Vulnerable Women to Earn Safe Livelihoods

    NEF’s Sudan headquarters is in Khartoum, with field offices in Zalingei (Central Darfur) and Dilling (South Kordofan) and presence in El Obeid (North Kordofan).
