Thanks for giving me Education!
Hundreds of workers and citizens took to the streets in Wau, South Sudan second largest on Friday to protest against the increased of cost of living, and salary in arrears as the leaders warned the country’s economic woes were reaching a crisis point.Clink here for more
Protesters in Wau city, west east of Juba, demonstrated over raising prices of goods and services, and salary in arrears which they said were not matched by current wage structures.
A yawning public sector deficit, a falling local currency and high inflation have heaped pressure on South Sudan, which before independence was seen as a promising emerging economy in East Africa.
We are grateful for your continued support to sponsor South Sudanese children in Uganda project.
At this second quarter of field update reporting:
With your money you gave through GlobalGivng, you paid school fees for three children attending primary school in Gulu northern Uganda.
With funding from Trolltech Foundation, 20 children had been sponsored. Four children go to nursery school, two students to vocational institute, and 14 pupils attend various primary school in Uganda.
Due to current political tension in Juba, and around the country many children had crossed the border into Uganda looking for safety and education. However, with insufficient fund Hope Ofiriha cannot send the new influx of refugee kids to school. We need your help to send them to school! Without your support, they will stay ignorant with no hope for a better future.
In a next third quarter, HO will be posting a new field update reporting on the progress, and how your donation is positively impacting on the lives of the needy.
Thank you GlobalGivng! Thank you, Trolltech Foundation! And thank you our supporters around the world! Without you, we could not have been where we today.
