Hold the Child is a Relief, Development and Advocacy not for profit Organization that works alongside vulnerable children in disaster affected and underdeveloped communities. Founded in Bor town in 2010 in the wake of heightened inter-communal clashes and Child abduction amidst poor Child care in the underserved Jonglei state - Bor (South Sudan). We are a South Sudan Based organization that works in a network of 2 sister organizations in Uganda and Kenya.
To us a Child is a unique gift to humanity fully endowed with abilities; that need to be protected, provided for, and given a chance to constructively participate in the development of their society. We are set out to inspire and champion a collaborated action by the family, community, governmental agencies, and other local & international actors for the welfare of the children; an effort to raise viable individuals who will socially, morally and technically propel sustainable development of South Sudanese society and humanity in general
Our commitment to promote the best interest of the Child, amidst limited resources has tremendously built our reputation in the communities where we work and our partners. We work in collaboration with other organizations, governments, and a variety of partners to pursue a peaceful, healthy and dynamic society where the rights of children and other vulnerable groups are protected and promoted, while upholding our independence without political agendas.
Throughout the communities we serve, our staffs and volunteers share common values at individual and team levels: Integrity, Collaboration, Accountability and Nurture (I CAN).
Integrity: We seek to work towards the highest standards of personal honesty, organizational ethical performance and consistence. We seek the best interest of a child.
Collaboration: Self-respect and general respect for others; regardless of our diverse backgrounds and affinities; we are open to new ideas and approaches to harness value for children; we work and seek to establish stable partnerships locally and internationally, in our effort to contribute to the welfare of the child.
Accountability: Our organizational structure is set in a way that embraces personal responsibility for effective resource utilization, achieving intended measurable results and transparency to the Child and partners.
Nurture: We can change agents, we live by examples, we are commitment to modest standards of child care and development at individual and institutional level
