Sani-Tayi Self Help Scheme
 

 

The Sani-Tayi Self-Help Scheme is led by Pastor John Noah Komi, who also oversees the Church of God in South Sudan, made up of approximately 150 churches. The Scheme was formed by individuals who sought to help relieve the desperate poverty of this region, which has seen little benefit from foreign aid, despite being afflicted by decades of civil war. They named it 'Sani-Tayi', which means 'the poor person helping the poorer person'.

 

A major focus has been vocational training, and Afrinspire has supported an individual learning to drive, as well as training in carpentry for young people who are otherwise uneducated. Through this programme, they acquire the skills to make several pieces of furniture, which they can sell to generate income. Consequently, at least 8 young people now work for themselves and have a future, while otherwise they may have had to resort to begging on the streets. As well as carpentry, Afrinspire has supported a leather-working programme, and 10 fully-trained workers buy leather from Jinja in Uganda to make into balls and belts for sale.

Afrinspire has supported the Sani-Tayi Self Help Project to create schools for the Mundri people at Lajora and Gwuluka, outside Terekeka town in South Sudan, and north of the new capital, Juba. As a result of this, over 200 children have had access to primary education since the schools were established in 2010.

Currently Afrinspire is supporting the Sani-Tayi Self Help Project in the roofing of two classrooms in two schools, Natibo and Mogiri in Terekeka. The classrooms will also be used for other community gatherings such as meetings and prayers.
