Creating an opportunity for young women to shape the future of South Sudan
SSEG is a charity organisation set up and run by Sudanese people living in Australia with the help of some Australian school teachers and community members.
Members of the SSEG committee have been inspired by the story of Anna Dimo and her dream to enable women to be educated participants in the rebuilding of South Sudan.
Our Mission at SSEG is to provide increased educational access and opportunities for girls in Southern Sudan. To achieve this, SSEG is building a girls’ high school in the town of Aweil and aims to contribute to the rebuilding of Southern Sudan by increasing education levels in the country (after a 21 year period of severe lack of education due to war).
The high school will provide high quality academic learning, as well as vocational and life skills classes to empower girls to participate in the rebuilding of the country. The school aims to be self-sufficient in water usage, gas and power needs. 100% of funds raised go directly to the building and development of the school. We believe…Educate a woman, Educate a nation.
