The Project

Lomin in Kajo-Keji County, South Sudan,  is a very peaceful region close to the border of Uganda. It is the home of the Kuku tripe with a population of about 165 000 inhabitants. Since 2005, after more than 20 years of civil war, people are returning from the refugee camps to start a new life. They face challenges and have to learn to take charge of life themselves.

The long civil war in South Sudan destroyed not only the infrastructure and as  almost every health care or education possibility, but as well significant parts of culture and tradition. With the creation of this project existing knowledge but as well hidden skills and talents should be recovered and strengthen to revive the almost lost traditions in the long term.

The project has been established in  October 2008 under the name “Lady Lomin – we weave the future”. We  mainly offer women the opportunity to take care and earn there life on their own, to become  independent and to establish good  life for their families.
