HARD is an Indigenous Sudanese NGO formed in 1995 at the height of civil war to serve the communities in the larger Bahr el Ghazal region of Southern Sudan. HARD originally delivered humanitarian support to the communities but has systematically increased its capacity and is currently implementing a number of recovery and long-term development programmes. In 2009, the organisation unveiled a strategic plan for 2010-2014 that identified food security and education as the main programmes for the intervention.
