A generation of children in South Sudan is being deprived of a fair chance in life.
More than two million children, or over 70 %, are out of school in South Sudan, putting at risk their futures and the future of the country. Some of the out- of- school children are living in pastoral communities, moving with their cattle and are not able to attend regular classes. The largest group of out-of-school children in South Sudan are girls. Poverty, child marriage and cultural and religious views all hinder girls' education.
