Operation Broken Silence
Memphis, Tennessee, United States of America
Operation Broken Silence is building a global movement to empower the Sudanese people through innovative programs as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Where we work: The Nuba Mountains of Sudan
We focus on the Nuba Mountains region and nearby Yida Refugee Camp. This isolated area sits near the border of Sudan and South Sudan. All of the stories we tell are from this beautiful, but oppressed corner of Sudan.
The Nuba Mountains are home to roughly 100 African tribal groups who have lived there for over 2,000 years. The approximately 1.3 million Christian, Muslim, and traditionalist Nuba people live mostly in harmony together.
Sadly, the Nuba way of life has been in danger for decades. Sudan’s military and extremist regime officials have long viewed the Nuba people as a threat to their iron-fisted rule. The military and their paramilitary allies have committed two genocides in the region since the 1990s. A fragile ceasefire has been in place since 2016, but war clouds still loom over the Nuba Mountains today.
Our progress: Empowering the Sudanese people
We invest the funds our movement raises into Sudanese heroes and institutions who have years of experience working to improve education and healthcare for the Nuba people. Our team works closely with them to ensure every dollar is accounted for.
Roughly every 3-4 months, we provide a report or story from these programs back to our fundraisers and donors. Here’s the progress we’ve made since we started working in 2011.
