* UNICEF: “Go to School” Initiative Offers Better Life to Youth in Southern Sudan
* 01 May 2007


In the rural plains of Southern Sudan, little has changed over the years, despite booming growth in urban areas. The countryside is dotted with ‘cattle camps’ like this one, in Marial Bek. 

Communities move with their herds according to the seasons. Children who grow up in the camps are taught traditional skills centered on the cattle they tend. Formal schooling is almost never an option. 

UNICEF is helping the Government of Southern Sudan in their campaign to rebuild the education system and bring 1.6 million children to school by the end of this year. It’s a considerable challenge. A lack of learning spaces and cultural taboos on sending children to school - especially girls - has been a roadblock to formal education.

SOUNDBITE Marial Makur, GEM leader: “Last year we brought 95 children back in who dropped out of school. The GEM clubs went and talked to the parents about the future of the children. If you are an educated girl in the future, your future will be better.”
Malok Mangui also grew up in the Marial Bek cattle camp. He decided to attend school and now works for the State Ministry of Education.

SOUNDBITE Malok Mangui: “Nowadays a person who is educated is earning a good life.”
He also works with UNICEF and the Girls’ Education Movement to reach out to children in remote areas and persuade them to come to school.

SOUNDBITE Malok Mangui: “When you send your girls to school, I told them, your girl will be very productive, in both giving you wealth through the man who’s going to marry her, and even the wealth herself she’s going to produce out of her education. I was telling them there is going to be a double income.”

Despite the challenges of life in this remote rural area, with the help of UNICEF and the government, these children will have a chance to reach their potential.
