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 accompanying latrines at Haddow school.
Together with our partner The Brickworks we constructed classrooms at an orphanage 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 between leading to displacement and having dire impact on child 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 projects there.
