Can you help keep a school in South Sudan from closing? SSEG urgently needs funds to keep their school afloat.
South Sudan Educate Girls(SSEG) is a charity set up and run by South Sudanese refugees living in Sydney with the assistance and support of members of the Australian community. Anna Dimo, a pastoral worker in Western Sydney who is a former refugee from South Sudan, had a dream to educate girls in her home country so they can play a part in the rebuilding of South Sudan.
Anna raised the funds to build a four-classroom school for 275 girls in the Aweil region—the Mary MacKillop College. It is the only school in the vicinity. Now Anna is faced with enormous challenges to keep the school open. The Government of South Sudan cannot contribute to any running costs. The most immediate need is the salaries of the teachers who will drift away if not paid. The costs for teachers and a daily meal the students are US$450 per month.
Closing a school because wages cannot be paid is inconceivable for us living in Australia but it is the reality facing Anna’s school.
Can you help to give the girls a chance?
