Educate Children and Fight Poverty in South Sudan



When remote Omilling village in South Sudan has its own school, war orphans and vulnerable children will no longer have to trek eight hours round trip on foot to get an education.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The only school Omilling has to serve several thousand elementary-aged students is a small two-room temporary shack made out of twigs. The shack, used for early elementary, has no text books and no pit latrines (giving the school grounds an unpleasant odor). Once children pass their exams to start primary 4, they must trek eight hours round trip on foot through the wild bush to the nearest primary school, which is 70 kilometers away. Almost no families allow their daughters to make this trek.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our Mairo Primary School Project will build a school (made with soil blocks and thatched roofs) providing free primary education. Built in 4 phases, it will have 8 classrooms, 8 teachers homes, 2 toilet blocks, a library, an office, and a store.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project gives kids a ticket out of poverty. Educated girls can eventually give their own families a good start in life. Educated boys can escape a family cycle of hard labor. This will ripple to their families and community.
