Green Kordofan is a charitable organisation that champions sport and personal development for girls and boys aged 6 to 18.
We work with the thousands of people who have been forced to flee the civil war in Sudan and are now living in refugee camps in 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.
Sports for children in refugee camps
Green Kordofan’s aim is to bring sports to the young people in refugee camps in Yida. Sport can bring a culture of peace and teamwork as well as boost self-esteem in young people, along with physical and mental health.
We run a girls’ volleyball team – the first in Yida camp, South Sudan
We run Thirty-Eight boys' and girls' football teams.
We give the children individual and social support around local issues like HIV, social equity, and conflict resolution
