South Sudan is located in northeastern Africa. It gained its freedom July 9, 2011 and became the world’s newest independent country after decades of war with Sudan. The Republic of South Sudan has incredible challenges to overcome as they begin the task of building a nation in an area where war has displaced millions of people and the internal infrastructures of a society are all but nonexistent.
The new nation has many humanitarian challenges to address:
The school and the education provided there helps to promote and enable those who have suffered from war and displaced refugees returning home to rebuild their lives by providing education, one of the necessary foundations of a community.
The school provides a hot and nutritious daily lunch to 249 students.
Our graduates are becoming doctors, nurses, teachers, ministers, administrators, and the strong leadership needed in South Sudan.
The school provides a safe place for children to learn and grow. In addition to academic work they are also learning and being given tools to work toward peace and justice reconciliation.
Our method of encouraging and teaching the people of South Sudan about the importance of educating woman and providing a safe place to accomplish this delays marriage and works toward ending this practice.
Delaying early marriage by putting girls in school allows these young women to grow and develop before giving birth, which helps prevent premature pregnancy and deaths related to this practice.
We have been successfully graduating students since 2011, and they continue to have an exceptional success on national examination. Our graduates are becoming the most educated people in South Sudan.
We are currently educating 249 (100 girls and 149 boys) students and making an impact toward increasing literacy in South Sudan.
Our school campus has girls and boys latrines.
Our school campus has two wells, providing clean water for our students and teachers.
South Sudan remains Hope for Humanity, Inc.’s partners top concern as well. Please consider joining us in our mission to eliminate illiteracy and poverty in South Sudan.
