SSD 02 - GIVING HOPE THROUGH EDUCATION
The project is carried out in Wau and the surrounding villages. Education is not the government's priority in this insecure and unstable country after the war.
State schools often do not meet the expectations of young people and their parents, so people looking for education turn to private schools or church schools, where they have to pay for the enrollment form, school fees, uniforms and school supplies. The school fee therefore becomes a problem when the family has 3 or 4 children of school age, and if they have to choose families they give priority to the boys.
In South Sudan there are many people thirsty to have the opportunity to study, to prepare to help their country to have a future other than violence. People who want change and a better place where their children can receive a good education, quality health services and lasting peace. They believe that if you have the chance to prepare things could change little by little.
With this project we are committed to paying school fees for those families who want to guarantee quality education to their children by giving priority to girls.
- Promoting women's education
- Give a different option to girls who are forced to marry at an early age
- Prepare girls and boys for a better future.
Direct: about 220 children and young people especially girls
