Education

Education is one of the thematic areas for intervention that PFN strives to support in emergency situations, promote and improve in the post war South Sudan. PFN believes that no Country can develop without investing substantially in the education of its people. Essentially the process of Education which is to acquire knowledge and skills must be continuous because there are new problems all the times and require new thoughts to solve hence should not be interrupted by any situation

The conflict has had major consequence on education among other key sectors with destruction of school facilities among other key community support structures; which has had a serious impact on access to protective education for thousands of vulnerable boys, girls and youth, and is likely to continue. Education standards in the country still lag behind with indicators being ranked lowest in the world and have deteriorated further due to the ongoing conflict, which has forced more than one million children and adolescents out of school. Boys and girls from the displaced communities are also facing a myriad of protection related issues especially girls who have to fetch firewood and water in unfamiliar environments face the risk of raped or forced marriages.

Boys have to take care of cattle thereby risking fighting with host and other communities, due to crop damage by animals; hence the need for safe protected learning spaces where they can interact with their peers and learn life skills and an opportunity for lost children to be reunified with their parents. Basic Education is virtually non-existent as the youngest boys and girls are often left at home while elder ones undertake livelihoods actions especially in South Sudan.
