Established in 2008 in South Sudan, Loreto Rumbek Primary and Secondary School educates girls from ages 5 to 20.

Our Challenge - educating girls in South Sudan

Girls in South Sudan face extreme adversity in the pursuit of academic success. Even a basic education is a right denied to many.

Young girls and especially young women are less likely to enroll and more likely to drop out.
