CDC is an indigenous non-governmental, nonprofit organization in South Sudan, founded by a connection of artistic and ambitious South Sudanese youth in Yei.

Youth, who constitute the largest share of the South Sudan population and also in cyberspace, need to be educated & equipped with the necessary competence to recognize and act against online hate speech.
