WDG History

WDG is a growing Southern Sudanese NGO working in cooperation with organizations to encourage full community participation in order to fight poverty and promote peace and development for families and communities in Western Bahr el Ghazal State (WBeGS).

Formed in 2000 by a group of women, WDG is a response to the poverty, hunger and disease caused by conflict in Wau and surrounding communities. The conflict resulted in the displacement of large numbers of people from Wau into other villages. The humanitarian situation in and around Wau deteriorated as food stocks were exhausted and resulted in hunger, malnutrition, disease and deaths. It was against this backdrop that the Women Development Group was formed to support the poor and needy, with an emphasis on female-headed households and vulnerable children.  In 2001, WDG became a registered non-governmental organization

The overall responsible body of WDG is the General Assembly. The General Assembly meets once a year. The Executive committee comes the second in the hierarchy after the general assembly; operationally, the general assembly delegates its authority to the Executive Committee to oversee the activities of the management. The Executive Committee is elected from within the general assembly.
