South Sudan Foundation
The Education Foundation for South Sudan was founded with the aim to raise enough funds to build a school for children in Rumbek in South Sudan, in line with the opening of the South West College Erne Campus. On July 9, 2011, with significant backing from the United States, South Sudan became independent of northern Sudan and sought its future as the newest country – and newest democracy – in the world.
However, according to the World Bank, literacy in South Sudan is the lowest in the world, and the aspirations of the South Sudan people have been made even more difficult due to internal conflict that broke out between its leaders in late 2013. South West College’s Education Foundation for South Sudan hopes to help the country move forward with the ambitions it set in 2011. Watch the video below to find out more.
Despite the pandemic we know how lucky we are to be moving into our amazing new Erne Campus facility later this year. So we want to give something back to those less fortunate than us by helping to build a school in Rumbek in South Sudan.
