ROOTS of South Sudan is a 501c3 founded in 2011 to empower South Sudanese women and youth through the preservation of traditional crafts.

ROOTS of South Sudan raises funds and facilitates grant applications on behalf of The ROOTS PROJECT, a South Sudanese NGO founded by Anyieth D’Awol in 2009. The funds are used to support the project’s craft activities, equipment and learning materials and provide members with job skills, literacy and math training in a safe environment for mothers and their young children to work and learn.

In addition, ROOTS of South Sudan promotes, publicizes and markets the arts and crafts created by the women at The ROOTS PROJECT.

The ROOTS PROJECT provides a merit based, non-discriminatory safe environment for women in South Sudan. The PROJECT provides all materials for the crafts and promotes and markets the finished products locally and abroad. As part of the integrated services, the Project also provides literacy and math classes, childcare, healthy meals for women and their children, as well as transportation, legal support and emergency funding for healthcare, as needed
