Our Dream for Ariang School:
Education in the shadow of civil way requires a holistic approach. Our vision if for Ariang School to become a center for community development. It can serve as a hub for community dialogue, as well as mobilization for addressing other social, economic and health issues.
Starting in 2013, we started providing stable, nutritious meals for the children which are supplemented by World Food Program. Our hope is to add a school-based health clinic with a school nurse and health educator to teach and promote basic hygiene and sanitation in the school. All school children would receive vaccinations and weekly recreational opportunities.
Because of the prolonged war, a generation of South Sudanese adults was deprived of basic education in their youth. Therefore, our vision is to provide adult education in order to develop the village. Adults in the community would have the opportunity to attend classes in the evening and learn skills in tailoring, masonry, and basic computer skills.
