The World’s newest nation, South Sudan, is struggling to hold itself together. The Canadian government has recognized the need to aid the population as the country attempts to right itself; and yet, doing so without engaging the nation’s government. The country has been likened to a derelict boat run by untrained officers and inexperienced crew. There is a need to both keep the passengers safe and train the crew. Without building capacity in the officers and crew the global community is condemned to providing aid at infinitum. To board the ship and take over without the blessing of the officers, is an act of piracy no matter how well intentioned. Just as semaphore is an outdated method of communication, the Canadian government must find new ways to communicate with and fund service providers who are seeking to help this fragile state become more robust.
