Education in Emergency Programme in Four Former States in South Sudan

In South Sudan, there is an urgent need to support schools with interventions for ensuring access to quality education and preventing school abandonment.
The target beneficiaries will be school-age children attending primary schools in South Sudan (aged 6-18), primary school teachers, school staff, Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) and the education system in general. School meals help keep children in school during both emergencies and ongoing crises. Other key interventions to ensure access to quality education will include availability of adequate teaching materials and professional training to teachers, focusing on learning achievements. Emphasise will also be placed on the needs of the girl child (i.e. capacity building of teachers on GBV, gender sensitive toilet facilities and dignity kits) with the aim that schools provide a safe and supportive environment for boy and girl pupils alike. This intervention will target 75,000 students.

Main objectives

(1) Improve access to quality learning opportunities for 75,000 children (6-18 year olds) in safe and protective environments in the four states;

(2) Improve the nutrition status of primary learners in the four targeted areas with daily school meals throughout the academic year.
