The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) established the FES Sudan Office in 1976. Pursuant to the FES’s mandate to promote the values of social democracy, the FES Sudan Office promotes peace, democracy, human rights, and a just socio-economic development in Sudan.
"International Cooperation is far too important to be left to governments alone." Willy Brandt
The FES in Sudan strives to enable societal groups to articulate their interests by strengthening their capacities to participate in social and political discourses. Fostering gender equality is of particular significance in this process. We support activities of Sudanese partners of all regional, cultural and social origins, and cooperate with governmental institutions, universities, trade unions, media institutions and civil society organizations.
