South Sudan 2019
Save the Children
In 2019, the education response aims to ensure that children and youth (3-18 years) have access to quality formal and non-formal education and that girls and boys already in school are retained. Recognizing that South
Sudan has one of the highest rates of out-ofschool children in the world, the cluster will prioritize new enrolments and retention in 2019. By providing access to safe learning spaces, children can benefit from key lifesaving and life-sustaining activities such as psychosocial support, WASH education, and school meals. Education partners
will strengthen education personnel’s and governance bodies’ capacities through training. The cluster aims to build resilience through cognitive and social development of children and youth.
