An education brings hope of a better future for children around the world. For the children of South Sudan, a day at school means even more. It is a place of safety. War has forced them from the only home they’ve ever known. Some are separated from their parents. Others are orphaned, and have watched the murders of their own family members. Their trauma is unimaginable, but the hope of a better life keeps them coming to school every day, despite the heat, the long walk, and the lack of resources.
Education is a Future
An education is an opportunity to learn skills that will lead to employment and a economically stable future. It gives young girls an alternative to early motherhood and endless poverty. It gives shattered lives a renewed sense of purpose. Educated children are the peacemakers, the leaders, the teachers, and the doctors. They are the end to a cycle of poverty and crisis. They are the future.
