EDUCATION IS OUR PRIORITY
EVERY CHILD WANTS TO GO TO SCHOOL
In Uganda and South Sudan, it's a parent and child's dream to be sent to school. In many areas, younger children have to stay home and help their parents farm the land or work so they can survive.
South Sudan has one of the lowest school/education attendance records in the world. More than 70 percent of children are unable to attend school in South Sudan, the newest internationally recognized country in the world, placing both their own and the future of the country at risk.
MORE THAN 2 MILLION CHILDREN:
Some of the out-of-school children are living in pastoral communities, moving with their cattle, and too busy to go to classes with any regularity.
However, the largest group of out-of-school children in South Sudan are comprised of girls, with poverty, child marriage, and cultural and religious views all known to hinder females' schooling, according to UNICEF.
UGANDAN SCHOOLS RANKED NUMBER 4 IN THE AFRICAN CONTINENT
Ugandan schools are ranked some of the better schools in the sub-continent. Education is free up until grade 7.
School education in Uganda consists of three levels of varying length: seven years of elementary, four years of lower secondary, and two years of upper secondary education.
Elementary education is the only compulsory level, and, since the introduction of UPE, is free for all Ugandan children aged six to 13.
South Sudan students attend school while teachers strike for better conditions
SOUTH SUDAN has had many issues finding teachers for its schools. It also faces a lot of challenges as a new country, unstable after the war, so the government educational system is suffering.
Angels of East Africa, therefore, seeing a need for assistance, started its own school in 2016 - called "Angel Centre for Higher Learning, Nursery, and Primary".
A team from the USA read stories to the young children
NIMULE, SOUTH SUDAN "Angel Centre for Higher Learning Nursery and Primary" is doing very well. Based on the exam results for the primary 8 class going into senior school, we rated #2 in the whole country of South Sudan and #1 in our area. We have a total number of 130 students at Angel Centre for Higher Learning at present.
Any teachers on our mission trips who want to be a part of working at the school are most welcome to help at the school while visiting.
