Evidence of Program's Success

Despite a dip in total enrollment because of renewed violence in 2015; students are bravely returning to Jonglei Hope Academy to continue their education. According to a study conducted in partnership with graduate students at the University of Denver, girls' enrollment in schools where Project Education South Sudan operates has more than tripled. Further, while illiteracy for women in South Sudan stands at one of the highest rates of the world -- 84% -- and a young woman is three times more likely to die during childbirth than to graduate high school; Project Education South Sudan has a graduation rate of over 94%, an astounding achievement in this context.
