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.
