Christ Mission to the World is committed to the welfare of children from primary to high school of learning and seeks to ensure that children’s rights are respected, protected, realized and fulfilled at home, in school, and in the community. CMW is also addressing the challenge that faces out of school students in order to bring an end to a cycle that leaves them without any access to labour market. Investment needs to be made in all aspects of public education. In South Sudan, fewer than 30% of schools have a permanent building. Most communities have no learning materials, resources or training centers. The low number of educated adults means there are very few educated and qualified teachers. But we give the Lord God all the glory that has enabled us to construct a permanent primary school in Aweil Central through a generous donor whom we are thankful to. We need to build more primary and secondary schools since most of them are still conducted under tree, a situation which is complicated during dry (when the heat is unmanageable) and rainy seasons.
CMW has also managed to drill water borehole within the school compound for the school to maintain hygiene and good health among the children. The learners are expected to pay a small fee for the school sustainability and especially to pay teachers and subordinate staff salaries beside food, teaching and learning materials, school repairs, and other miscellaneous costs. Our budget cost is still higher than what the school can contribute and hence the need to ask for more donation to enable us to run our school programme successfully.
Therefore, in order to ensure access to basic quality education for the most vulnerable children in our school, we are appealing to friends of South Sudan, well-wishers individuals and organizations to sponsor a child from poor background and especially those orphaned by conflicts in the region. This is how your money can help one child to learn in our school for one year:
- School fee – USD 500
- Food – 200
- Healthcare – 200
- Uniform – 100
