Education

Delivering education services is currently a top priority in BRAC's development agenda in South Sudan. Our education programme covers children and youths between the ages of 4 to 25. Through our own modality in operating schools, we deliver lessons in a more child-friendly manner. In South Sudan, our community girls' schooling is an alternative academic programme targeting girls.

Another significant project in education is 'support to primary education in South Sudan' which was commissioned by (United Nations Office for Project Services) UNOPS and funded by the Italian government. The main objective of the project was to contribute to increase the access and quality of education especially for girls through community participation in the schools.
