The biggest challenge that most schools face in South Sudan is sustainability. Schools are built and kick off learning to then close down in less than one decade. In just the two-hour drive from Wau to Ariang, you will see several abandoned school buildings, a symbol of failed community dreams. This national issue is due to a number of factors that include mass student dropouts, weak school leadership & management, insufficient funding, on-going civil war, insecurity concerns, hunger, and insignificant teacher salaries. This program focuses on the following objectives:
Construction of permanent school infrastructures such as classrooms, bathrooms & drainage systems, boreholes, and water storage units.
