Juba, February 18, 2019 (SSNA) — The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), Lutheran World Foundation, South Sudan’s Ministry of Education, CRA, and UNHCR refugee community have launched ‘back to school’ campaign in former Unity State, Ajuong Thok and Pamir refugee camps.

The UNHCR and its partners say they are waging the campaign to make sure school-age children are enrolled and stay in schools.

South Sudan school enrolled declined significantly after the ongoing civil war broke out in December 2013.

The group also stated that they are coaching refugees on sustainable business management in Upper Nile and other areas in the country.
