Challenge

A generation of children in South Sudan is being deprived of a fair chance in life. More than two million children [over 70 %] are out of school, putting at risk their futures and the future of the country. Some of the out- of- school children are living in pastoral communities, moving with their cattle and are not able to attend regular classes. The largest group of out-of-school children are girls. Poverty, child & forced marriage, cultural and religious views are hindering factors.

Solution

A child born to an educated mother has a 50% higher chance of survival. The risk of child marriage and early pregnancy is lower if girls stay in school. Educated parents are more likely to educate their children. On this, POH is promoting girl education through campaigns, supporting the most vulnerable girls with school uniform, books, pens, bags, menstrual hygiene promotions, emergency sanitary pads, advocacy on safe spaces for menses and encouraging communities to send children to school.

Long-Term Impact

Investing in Girls education in South Sudan and empowerment means that, they will have the tools to make smart choices that will better the lives of their children in the future. This program will get 500 girls from villages of Mundri County to school to pursue their potential in life and be the foundation for the young generation of girls
