Our Vision

Children are important

 
 

You believe, as we do, that every child deserves a future.

The world has made great progress for children. More children are alive and thriving today than ever before.

But in South Sudan, millions of children still aren't getting what they deserve. We're talking about children in need. Dying, when the world knows how to save them. Vulnerable children in poverty. Denied an education. Forced to flee violence. Orphaned, abused, abandoned. Children with no reason to smile. No hope for the future.

The Challenges for Children in South Sudan

On the brink of famine and facing conflict, disease and extreme poverty, children in South Sudan need your help.*

  • 16% of girls 15 and older are literate

  • 67% of school-age children are out of school

  • 91 out of 1000 children die 
    before their 5th birthday

  • 66% of people live in poverty

 
 
A child in South Sudan studies in a school. Fewer than half of the school-age kids are in school in South Sudan, one of the world's poorest countries, which has also been plagued by war.
