Our Story

Community Development Centre (CDC) has its roots in local community radio and cultural awareness project in Yei (South Sudan) known as the ‘RORO LOKA’ meaning the ‘Voice of the land’ an initiative aimed at bridging communities through the understanding of their unique diversities and promoting respect for each other and addressing issues affecting the community through civic education and Community-Centered media.

In 2015 by the petition of the communities and the action of four founding members, the organization got established under the name ‘Community Development Centre (CDC)’ in South Sudan as a non-profit national NGO and duly registered in 2016 by the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Relief and Rehabilitation Commission (RRC).

Our Founders were then concerned about the deteriorating cultural practices that maintained unique traditional heritage in the communities and the poor economic, social, environmental, health, and high rates of unemployment that resulted from illiteracy and marginalization of communities, that why they responded and brought this organization to exist.

In the Community Development Centre (CDC) our founders envisioned an organization that acts as a shelter of hope to communities in need, focusing on community development and working to aware stakeholders at regional and international levels on community development needs and situations of the disadvantaged rural and urban, women, children, youth and Men. These aspirations are what is today embedded or being realized in our work.

Since then we’ve rapidly grown into an international network with a presence in South Sudan, Uganda and now expanding to the Democratic Republic of Congo, impacting lives through community-centred programs, one community at a time
