Job Title: Protection Programme Manager – GE – South Sudan

Code: SR-41-1072

Duty station: Yei, with different missions throughout Greater Equatoria and some periods in Juba

Starting date: ASAP

Contract duration: 3 months

Reporting to: Head of Mission

Supervision of 8 staff

Dependents: n/a


General context of the project

Yei is consistently identified as a priority location for interventions due to ongoing conflicts between government and opposition forces, lack of access in surrounding rural areas and challenges facing static partners in responding to the growing number of IDPs. Constant and rapid displacement of populations from surrounding areas, high levels of violence towards civilians in the form of looting, gender-based violence (GBV) and actual conflict surges between factions exacerbate an already critical situation. The city of Yei is located in Yei County, Central Equatoria in southwestern South Sudan, close to the international borders with the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Republic of Uganda.

The security situation in and around Yei Town is fluid, with increased tensions in proximal locations to Yei particularly in counties such as Lainya, Wonduruba, Katigiri, Otogo, Mugwo and Lujulo. The continued clash between government and opposition forces has seen advanced military offensives across the region, while civilians bear the brunt of the conflict. Restrictions issued by the armed elements has affected movement of villagers into town in search of economic opportunities and livelihoods. Between January and February 2019, the conflict between the armed groups escalated and spread along the Yei-Maridi road and towards Morobo counties with reported displacements in Morsak, Ombasi, and Lujulo [1]

By mid-February, more than 9,500 IDPs had been registered by local authorities and community-based protection networks (CBPNs) in Yei Town with continuous reports of more arrivals. Lack of access to theareas surrounding Yei, due to insecurity, is a consistent barrier in the ability of partners to accurately track the movement of IDPs. Furthermore, increased armed clashes across Yei and surrounding areas have severely hampered the efforts of humanitarian partners. It is likely that the continued abuses by these armed actors will result in dwindled service provision in areas outside Yei, thus creating a pull factor for beneficiaries to move to Yei Town for services. FGD’s and KII’s with IDPs on the ground revealed numerous protection violations:

  • Prevalence of sexual violence, particularly against women and children during their movement to seek refuge;
  • Reports of looting of civilian properties, including burning and destruction of houses;
  • Physical violations and indiscriminate killing of civilians, as reported by interviewed IDPs;
  • Arbitrary arrests and detentions, including abduction and recruitment of males into armed groups, including children;
  • Cases of UASCs with little possibility for FTR due to lack of access;
  • Prolonged conflicts and multiple displacements affecting the mental, physical and socio-economic wellbeing of IDPs;
  • Reports that displaced persons outside of Yei town have been without food or access to services for lengthy periods of time;

Therefore, the proposed intervention aims to provide rapid life-saving protection assistance to populations affected by the ongoing crisis in Yei, through:

  • Quality GBV service provision by INTERSOS’ Rapid Response Mechanism to 3,070 individuals as direct beneficiaries.
  • Ongoing support to and capacity building of static GBV partners and service providers benefiting indirectly 12,500 beneficiaries.
