About Us

Green Kordofan’s aim is to bring sports to the young people in refugee camps in Yida. ​Green Kordofan is run with minimal administrative overheads, ensuring that the maximum amount of funding and donations go directly to support our work with young people in Yida refugee camp, South Sudan

Most of our fundraising and campaigning takes place in the UK – but all of our projects are based in Yida Refugee camp, which is in Unity state, South Sudan. 46,000 people live in the Yida camp and just over 50% of the total population are children aged between 5 and 17.
The charity was founded by its director Raga Gibreel, who lives in Folkestone, UK. Raga graduated from the Sudan University for Science and Technology, worked as a journalist in Sudan, and then studied Agriculture Development at Reading University.

Raga says, “My work for Green Kordofan comes from my love of Sudan and its people – and because I still believe in the power of people to create change.” Supported by a distinguished team of trustees, she works tirelessly to support the victims of a conflict that much of the world has overlooked.
