Who We Are

FAR facilitates the transformation of Sudan's vulnerable communities. Climate and politics challenge livelihoods, health, and quality of life in Sudan. FAR works with communities to address the root causes of poverty. FAR is committed to sustainable development and currently has projects in water and sanitation, economic development, food security, peace and conflicttransformation, emergency relief, and health.

FAR's work is rooted in relationships: it is our desire to build and strengthen long-term relationships with, and within, the communities we serve. FAR is committed to the people of Sudan. We begin our projects by listening to communities and then create lasting change by encouraging ownership within communities and the local authorities which serve them.

Although most people outside Sudan have never heard of FAR, we are well known and respected among the Sudanese. FAR practices quiet advocacy, committing energy and resources to sustainable development.

FAR began in Sudan in 1984. Today we are one of the most respected development organizations in the country. We currently have offices in Kosti, South Kordofan and West Darfur, and employ approximately one hundred staff. Learn more about FAR's Story.
