Africa Educational Trust - South Sudan

The Africa Educational Trust is a British organisation working in South Sudan.

Its School Mothers project aims to increase the number of girls entering and staying in school. With 94 of them supported by the Kavli Trust, School Mothers pursue hygiene training in 100 schools and reach 9 000 girls despite the turmoil in the central African country. These women provide important role models which meet basic requirements of the girls during their time in school.
