GUA Africa plans to build five classrooms at the Leer Primary School, an area devastated by the twenty year long civil war and currently battling with primary school completion rates of less than 20%.
The longest civil war in African history has devastated Sudan, killing 2 million and leaving 4 million people homeless. Since the establishment of peace in 2005 children are returning to the region, many now as orphans, hoping to receive an education. Only 20% of children are enrolling into primary school in South Sudan, and only 2% are completing primary school. Currently, over 2000 children attend the Leer Primary School, sharing 4 classrooms.
GUA Africa will build five classrooms to add to the four already in existence. This will more than double the teaching space and will enable the children to learn in a environment more conducive to study.
We will enable some 2000 children to learn more effectively in a classroom environment as opposed to outside under a tree.
