Story

Teenage girls, many of whom are graduates of Immanuel Kindergarten in South Sudan are selling themselves to pay for soap and food for their families. We are now seeking funding for a special education project to help these girls.  The majority of young people in South Sudan have only known war, violence and deprivation. Many people in Yei are weak due to the poor quality and limited availability of food and consequently vulnerable to the Covid-19 pandemic and other diseases resulting in high mortality rates, made worse by the lack of sufficient good quality health facilities. Many people  are traumatised with the magnitude of events they have witnessed leading to a sense of hopelessness.  Because all the learning institutions are currently closed because of the Covid-19 pandemic the girls have lots of time creating a dangerous situation for them. Many of the girls are now 'selling themselves' to pay for soap and food for their families often resulting in pregnancies. The Head teacher of the Kindergarten who is leading this initiative said 'The proposal is to use local radio broadcasts and workshops working with girls from the local senior schools in Yei to raise awareness and teach life skills as well as give out soap.
Even if we don't get anywhere near our target any small amount raised will be used to help make a difference to the girls and their families.
