In South Sudan, many women suffer from the effects of the 40-year civil war, violence and abuse.

SAD’s 2012–2016 ‘Women on the Move’ project is for them. SAD uses sport and play to support 700 women from Kajo Keji district in dealing with their trauma. This handbook was produced for the project. The first – theoretical – part shows why sport and play are suited to psychosocial rehabilitation. The second section is a pocket guide for play leaders in the field: it presents concrete ideas and instructions for play and sport activities with traumatised women, and can be used internationally.
