Conflict in Libya has seen more than 400,000 people being internally displaced and international organizations and NGOs have had to evacuate to Tunis, making it difficult to monitor their activities on the ground in Libya.
We monitor food distributions by WFP’s local partners, assessing issues and challenges in the distribution process, as well as give beneficiaries an opportunity to provide feedback to WFP.
Our ongoing monitor help to ensure accountability and efficient provision of food aid to vulnerable groups, improving the operations of WFP local partners.
With Sudan still ranking as the 138th state out of 162 countries in the Gender Inequality Index, millions of women face economic and political exclusion. These challenges are especially exacerbated amongst refugee women. As such, changing perceptions and attitudes, and ensuring vulnerable women and girls have access to opportunities is a long-term effort, which can only be achieved by involving local stakeholders and civil society organizations currently playing an active role in the development of their communities and their country.
Voluntas is expanding geographically. Earlier this year, we established a partnership with Sudan Polling and Statistics Center (SPSC). Dana Fuentes, a senior associate with Voluntas who until recently was based in Tunis, relocated to Sudan last month to support our expanding presence in the country. Dana will be supported by Nada Elamin. We will be opening an office in Khartoum in the coming months.
