The newly-appointed NDDRC’s Deputy Chairperson, Mr. Majur Mayor Machar, has been working with South Sudan Reconstruction and Development Funds (SSRDF) since 2006. During his tenure as Deputy Chairperson, SSRDF establish itself as vibrant institution that helps the Government and people of South Sudan in economic development across the country through Small Grant Programme. Through his participation in donor consultative meetings of South Sudan Recovery Fund Steering Committee (SC) and the Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF) Oversight Committee, Mr. Machar along with Sudan Recovery Fund Technical Secretariat establish State Stabilization Package, which provides services that help to minimize insecurity in four States - Jonglei, Lakes, Eastern Equatoria and Warrap.

Mr. Machar also helped SSRDF to develop its own acts and terms of reference that were presented to the Ministry of Justice and to the National Legislative Assembly for final approval as well as developed many documents including a blue print book entitled “Taking Towns to People” that echoes the vision of Late leader Dr. John Garang De Mabior, which he elucidated that “in order for us to develop our country we must take towns to the people and not people to towns”. “In actual sense, we must take services to the people in rural areas to avoid influx of rural-based population to towns,” ascertains the Deputy Chairperson.
