PROJECT EDUCATION SUDAN
September 6, 2010
PES has financed three schools in rural villages in southern Sudan. It works in partnership with the villagers themselves and promotes a sustainable model in which the Sudanese themselves take a leading role. PES emphasizes the inclusion of girls in the opportunities it promotes and takes steps, such as providing grinding mills, which free up the girls from their domestic chores so they can go to school. PES now has a representative on the ground in Sudan to monitor construction, etc. PES has significant connections in southern Sudan which allow it to successfully deliver services in a country where years of civil war have destroyed any infrastructure.
