Sixteen of the high school girls living at the House of Hope orphanage were able to receive a better education this year because of the faithful support of our partners.
In South Sudan, most students do not continue their education in secondary school. Even if they do continue, schools in Sudan are typically filled with underqualified teachers, unfriendly learning environments and inadequate materials. A small Christian boarding school in Uganda offers the House of Hope girls a chance for a higher quality education.
The girls traveled 600 miles away from their home in Juba, South Sudan this year to pursue their secondary education in Uganda.
It was a big step for these girls who have already been torn from their families and faced the devastation of war. They had to be willing to leave the younger girls in the orphanage, travel to another country and set up their belongings in their new home.
