Emmanuel Children's Program
in South Sudan, many children were orphaned, by the long war, which culminated in independence in 2011. In Marial Bai, the community stepped in to arrange carers for the children. These are mostly members of the child’s extended family. To enable these families to support an extra child, Emmanuel Orphan’s Primary School was established, providing the children with a primary education and one meal each day. Most children come to the school with very broken schooling so the age range in each class is enormous. There are many teenagers in primary school, which means the school has to provide for children who are parents or becoming parents. Emmanuel is moving forward, looking for government support to fund teacher’s salaries and World Food Programme support for the food program. 2020 started with about 400 children at Emmanuel, with classes from Primary 1 to Primary 8. All schools were closed for several months, but older students are being allowed to return. Emmanuel is now a hub for more than 80 Primary 8 students preparing for their final exams. Teachers continue to visit younger ones at home to encourage home learning.
Over the past 2 years carers have each received three young goats, helping them to cover the cost of education for their extra children directly themselves. Through the eyes of a child, there is a home and hope.
