the gap-standers

90% of our staff come from South Sudan. Our national staff speak the local language and share the cultural values and aspirations of the communities. The rest of our staff come from  the East African region e.g Kenya and Uganda.

Additionally, AMA’s staff:

                      • make a strong professional team
                      •  are well educated,
                      • highly qualified,
                      • willing to learn and grow,
                      • and are fully committed to the goals, values and vision of AMA.
