More than a decade after independence, South Sudan remains in a protracted humanitarian crisis, impacted by conflict, economic stagnation, and instability as well as being highly prone and vulnerable to climate-related shocks. One of the outcomes of this protracted crisis is the lack of educational opportunities for children and adolescents.

This case study documents the challenges and achievements in the provision of quality pre-primary education in the midst of a protracted crisis.
