Transformation through Education

“No country can really develop unless its citizens are educated.”
(Nelson Mandela)

Objectives

We promote education by training teacher and developing colleges. Thereby, we provide a future for youth in areas of crisis.

How we work

Network East Africa, supporting education

According to statistics, 73% of the population of South Sudan over the age of 15 are illiterate. In the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo, the percentage of children attending school felt to about 40% due to war and school fees.

Responding to these challenges, we support teachers and professionals to promote education in areas of crisis. In addition, we strengthen the development of colleges and training institutions in partnership with local churches.

By promoting trainers for the education system we empower communities in reducing poverty and criminality.

Background

Network East Africa, education

The security situation in South Sudan and the east of DRC is unstable. Lack of formal school education contributes strongly towards this problem.

As a result, young people without education and a vison for their life easily join rebel groups, especially during famin. However, those groups are stealing the resources from local comunities and actually increase hunger, displacement and calamity.

In order to break this cycle, teachers and training institutions are needed to empower the young generation with professional skills and values .
