Many students across the U.S. have said goodbye to the lazy days of summer and are once again hitting the books as a new school year officially kicks off. But while the semester is just getting underway here, that isn’t the case for the students of Project Education Sudan.
Girls at at the Ayak Anguei Girls’ Primary School in South Sudan have been very busy this summer. Not only have they overcome great challenges, from food shortages to celebrating the nation’s first independence day, but they are now busy sitting for mid-term exams. This comes just months before the school, which currently has 415 students, will celebrate its first graduating class later this year!
We’d like to wish all of the girls good luck as they sit for exams!
