African Revival works with partners to construct classrooms in some of the poorest regions of South Sudan, one of the poorest countries in the world. In 2017 we partnered with Fields of Life to construct one block of 4 classrooms and latrines at Haddow school. In 2018/19 we will be building a 4 room classroom block, including furniture, and latrines for boys and girls at Manikakara Primary School. We are also funding 12 month top ups salaries for teachers in the Ibba and Maridi districts.
Together with our partner The Brickworks we constructed classrooms in Kajo Keji. Prior to our intervention the facilities at the school were not fit for purpose – the classrooms consisted of poles with a grass roof. Infrastructure provision is vital for ensuring improved access to education in the country. Literacy rates remain low in the country, which has been disrupted with civil war leading to displacement, and has had a dire impact on children’s education.
African Revival sponsored five teachers for the Diploma of Education with The Brickworks which was completed in December 2016. Despite the drought and turmoil currently affecting South Sudan African Revival hopes to continue to support education projects.
