Project General Description

The project aims at building governance, institutional and human resources capacities of the Ministries of Welfare and Social Security (MoWSS) and Health (MoH) at federal, state and locality levels and developing human capital at the community level in order to improve employability, create jobs and expand access to and coverage of tailored safety nets and health services for the poor, especially women and youth. The project particularly targets the North Kordofan and White Nile states and the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) within the MoWSS. At the community level, the project will initiate and support skill development and entrepreneurship initiatives to gradually empower the poor and vulnerable for gainful employment and poverty reduction.

Project Objectives

The overall development objective of the project is to contribute to poverty reduction, economic and social progression in Sudan. The specific objective of the project is to build governance, institutional and human resources capacity in order to expand coverage and access to safety nets for inclusive social services mainly targeting the poor, especially women and youth.


The project mainly targets the poor and vulnerable populations in NK and WN. Ten localities (7 from NK and 3 from WN) and an estimated 20,000 (50% women) poor and vulnerable persons will benefit from this project. Poor and vulnerable women, especially women headed households are a major target group that the project will address. Children will also benefit through improved primary health care services and improved livelihoods for the women headed households. The project also targets the Federal MoWSS and MoH in Khartoum and their counterparts in the states of NK and WN. The MoWSS and MoH Directorates and the NHIF that plan for and manage safety net packages are targeted for capacity strengthening. An estimated 1,300 existing or additional staff will be trained under the project.
