South Sudan is in an educational crisis.
- 85% of South Sudan’s population is illiterate.
- 94% of appropriately aged students are not enrolled in secondary school.
- There is a high dropout rate, where only 18% of students who enroll in first grade remain in school by the end of the primary cycle, through eighth grade.
By donating to fund one teacher’s salary at Marial Bai Secondary School, you will be helping to pay a certified teacher, who will be best equipped to give students the skills they need to overcome such obstacles as illiteracy and poverty. In this way, your gift does much more than simply enable one teacher to pursue his or her passion—your gift will help support the next generation of future leaders in the world’s newest country.
