Summary

It's been 4-years since the outbreak of major conflict in South Sudan. The country has the highest rate of children missing out on schooling in the world, 72% according to UNICEF in 2017. Less than 1% of girls here will complete their secondary education. HDC is a national NGO, working across the country to help those impacted by conflict & displacement. Through Tomorrow Now, we provide scholarships & supports to girls to achieve their dream of obtaining an education.

Challenge

Displaced by conflict, left orphaned, provided with no chance to access education, victimized & at risk of sexual exploitation. These are just a few of the risks faced by girls in South Sudan today. In 2017, UNICEF reported that 72% of children in South Sudan are not in school - highest numbers in the world. At present, less than 1% of girls in country will complete secondary education, a place where girls are 2X LESS likely to have access to education than boys.

Solution

Tomorrow Now removes a girl from an active conflict, and places her in a safe, supportive learning environment, provides counselling and emotional supports, extra academic supports to catch up with a peer group, and enables life to become normalized for the girls. Tomorrow Now provides that girl with the opportunity to become a leader for the future of her nation, to rise beyond the difficulty that life has brought to her in these past years of economic collapse and active conflict.

Long-Term Impact

For each year a girl stays in school, future infant mortality drops by 5%. Girls marry later, reducing the risk of child marriage. One year of extra learning increases lifelong earnings for a woman by 15%. Tomorrow Now is building a future generation of leaders, with the skills and abilities to prevent future conflicts, to help in building a nation that is in dire need, and to assist those impacted by violence, exploitation, famine and economic collapse to embrace a brighter future.
