Nile Care Advocacy for Peace and Development (NILECAPD) is a South Sudanese humanitarian relief, development, and advocacy organization dedicated to building peaceful, resilient communities to restore peace, hope and sanity to humanity in South Sudan.
The Nile Care Advocacy for Peace and Development (NILECAPD) was founded in June 14, 2014 after the conflict in the capital city of Juba, South Sudan after which the country divided along ethnic lines. The founder and CEO of this organization, Bayak Chuol Puoch, thought about how to bring peace and unity among the South Sudanese Communities affected by these ethnic divisions during the war.
He invited community leaders and friends for coffee and convened a meeting under a tree in a small village called Jiokow, Upper Nile state bordering Ethiopia. After consensus with these community leaders, various gatherings were held involving other neighbouring communities and the need to have peace, unity and cooperation started merging.
These meetings culminated in the establishment of NILECAPD as an active non for-profit organization working in a serious campaign and advocacy to bring back the ethnic communities to create an environment of citizenship, love, unity and cooperation.
