Education is the best way to help people
COVID-19 Update at Hope and Resurrection Secondary School in Atiaba, South Sudan
In early February of 2020, the Hope and Resurrection Secondary school administrator, Awut Mayom Agok and principal, Anthony Mading began the interviews of incoming S1 students after their entrance examinations were completed. We were able to welcome 325 new and returning students to the campus and began the 2020 academic instruction in February. All was going well on the school campus until COVID19 hit the entire world! At the end of March as students finished their first examinations, the South Sudan government made the decision to close schools for COVID19. Hope and Resurrection Secondary School students were sent home with good hygiene/health instructions from teachers and reminders to keep their lessons fresh by studying their class notes. The whole world has been waiting for the time when schools could reopen again! Many nations have started this process to reopen. And, I am thankful to report that in September, the Republic of South Sudan made the announcement that the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education are working together to give directives to open schools in South Sudan. The Hope for Humanity, Inc. Board of Directors, The Executive Director, Suzanne Hicks, and the Hope and Resurrection Secondary School administrator, Awut Mayom Agok and principal, Anthony Mading, are now waiting to hear the directives so to offer education in Atiaba, South Sudan once again!
