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 came to the school with very broken schooling so the age range in each class was enormous. There were many teenagers in primary school, which means the school has to provide for children who are parents or becoming parents, which it has done through night classes. Emmanuel is moving forward, looking for government support to fund teacher’s salaries and World Food Programme support for the food program. Currently there are about 400 children at Emmanuel, with classes from Primary 1 to Primary 8. Over the past 18 months most carers have received three young goats. When all have received this boost to their livelihood they will be able to cover the cost of education for their extra children directly themselves. Through the eyes of a child, there is a home and hope.
