The 2015 Cycle of the UNITAR South Sudan Fellowship Programme was officially launched on 22 September 2015 in Juba, South Sudan, by UNITAR Hiroshima Head Mihoko Kumamoto, Japanese Ambassador to South Sudan Kiya Masahiko, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Country Director Balázs Horváth, Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Dr. Barnaba Marial Benjamin, and Undersecretary for the Ministry of Cabinet Affairs Ambassador Alier Deng Ruai.
Twenty South Sudanese Fellows, including eight women, were selected for the 2015 Cycle from twenty public sector and civil society organizations after a rigorous selection process. Participating in three workshops and a range of web seminars and asynchronous training modules, the Fellows undertook an Organizational Needs Assessment, and developed, throughout the Fellowship, a project proposal that addressed contemporary challenges and problems in South Sudan. The proposal served as an action plan for implementation upon completion of the programme. The Cycle concluded on 31 March 2016.
Watch the highlights and the journey of the 20 South Sudanese Fellows of the 2015 Cycle.
