South Sudan has one of the worst literacy rates, employment rates, and survival rates, especially for females, in the world. Rescue South Sudan Village People (RSSVP) aims to improve these staggering statistics by providing high-quality education based on time-proven teaching methods presented by highly qualified teachers. RSSVP is currently raising funds to build a school building for kindergarten through 2nd grade; our initial plan is to provide educational and developmental programs for children in these grades. For the next phases we plan to continue expanding the Majok-Chedhiop School, as funding is available until it becomes a full K-12th grade program.
We have already build four classrooms building. We are now raising $14,000 to build a teacher’s office. Rotary District has graciously donated $5,000 of that, and right now we need to raise an additional $9,000 to finish the administration office.
Beyond the obvious issues with employability and the lack of hope for bettering their lives, this leaves the South Sudanese people vulnerable to aggression and oppression from outside forces and keeps these people from taking their rightful place on the world stage today. With your help, we expect to achieve vastly improved literacy among girls and boys in the 6–16-year-old population of Majok-Chedhiop within the first decade of the school’s operation.
If you have any thought of helping us – now is the time!
RSSVP promotes sustainable communities by providing access to safe water, education, and medical care one village at a time. We envision each village of South Sudan equipped with safe water, health care, schools, community infrastructure, and local agriculture in order to be independent, healthy, and productive.
