WHO WE ARE

SSAPU is a farmers organization, aimed at giving farmers direction and economical support. It was founded in 2010 and registered in 2011 by 100 concerned farmers from different sectors.

SSAPU has branches, field offices and field facilitators in different counties of South Sudan. Our well-staffed head office is based in Juba. The field facilitators have degrees in agriculture. They meet the needs of the farmers by providing services, i.e. organising collective marketing actions, input purchasing or training farmers and following this up.

Another part of their work is to connect farmers to specific service providers based on their needs. The fact that SSAPU knows most of the farmers and all of the actors engaged in development work in their county is an asset.
