Label: Purpose & Activities

This group is comprised of various levels of society from grassroots women /men/ youth and middle class women regardless of tribe, religion, standard of living. They have just come out of 21 years of civil war between the Muslim in North Sudan and Christians and traditional in South Sudan. Development is not equal between the states, education wise some tribes are most backwards and most traditional and Muslim in the south are minority and the grievance of the war and mistreatment of Muslim North to Christian /traditional south by then should not be revenge against (Muslims South).  The superiority conflict exists between tribes in South Sudan and discrimination in appointment and employment on tribal line loyalty of the tribe.  The environment really requires unity in diversity preaching in all worth of life. In order to overcome division Pita Women Association for Development  has involved in confidence building and relationship between Sudanese and south Sudanese women after comprehensive peace Agreement of 2005, promotion of economic literacy and created program of small credit accessible to women. This new Cooperation Circle has also established a program of community dialogue for peaceful coexistence as an effort to bridge between and across Religion and tribes. They plan to carryout systematic research on the key socio-economic, spiritual expression –coexistence, social and political and other issues to form the bases for high level consultations or Advocacy and continue with education and health programs and spiritual development as cross –cutting activities

To empower, rehabilitate and develop women, men and youth severely affected by poverty
