Expanding Girls’ Education in South Sudan

Project Title: Girls' Education South Sudan (GESS)

The grim reality in South Sudan is that girls are more likely to die at birth than complete their primary education. Understanding that this robs the country of critical talents, the South Sudan government has made the education of girls a top priority. Winrock works with government officials at all levels to dramatically increase educational opportunities for girls through capacity building and by providing both teacher and peer-led mentoring.
