The Rescue Initiative-South Sudan (TRI-SS) is a national Non-governmental organization (NGO) founded in 2014 and legally registered with the RRC as National NGO #941.
TRI-SS worked with OCHA-South Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SSHF) on several funding rounds, implementing health projects (SSHF) from 2017-2021, covering Yirol East, Magwi, Yei, and Kajo Keji.
Through the support of UNICEF, TRI-SS leads the COVID-19 risk communication and EPI demand generation in Juba, Kajo Keji, Yei, Morobo, and Lainya counties. We also work as subgrantees with GOAL International for an ECHO-funded health and nutrition project in Kajo Keji and OXFAM GB for a GIZ-supported WASH project in Yambio. Earlier, we worked with the Reproductive Health Association of South Sudan (RHASS) for an HPF-funded family planning uptake project in Wau and with Community Initiative for Development Organization (CIDO) for SSHF funded health projects Akobo.
TRI-SS implemented USAID-funded health projects in partnership with IOM/RRF from 2018-2021 and family planning Research project with MEASURE Evaluation in 2019. We recently completed a year-long, qualitative methodological community feedback mechanism project on COVID-19 funded by US CDC & UNICE in Kajo Keji, Yei, Lainya, Morobo, Juba, Magwi, Ibba, and Maridi. We also worked with Amplify Change for the menstrual health management (MHM) Project in Juba and Yei from 2019 to 2020.
As part of the SSHF first-round Reserve allocation (SSHF-RA1), The Rescue Initiative responds to the health needs of conflict-affected IDPS of Tambura and Yambio counties. In addition to the regular emergency response activities, we are also piloting peace-building initiatives in health programming.
