LCED seeks to mobilize, empower and support South Sudanese local communities, IDPs and refugees in re-building their lives and source of livelihoods, fulfilling their human rights, enhancing their wellbeing, and promoting conflict-resolution and peaceful co-existence. We use a grassroot approach in all our activities, involving all stakeholders in all the planning and implementing phases of our projects. Through the establishment of Relief Distribution Committees (RDCs) in all project locations in South Sudan, we optimize assessment, distribution and we are able to manage conflicts that might arise within the population after the identification of beneficiaries. Our staff is also supported by local enumerators and laborers, hired for specific activities, and using a gender-balance approach. We strive to ensure accountability to the beneficiaries in all aspects of our project activities, and to act under the principle of DO NO HARM.
