Over 70% of the population is out of school in South Sudan, putting their futures and the future of the country at risk. Most children who are out of school are children who are living in pastoral communities, moving with their cattle, and are not able to attend regular classes. The largest group of children who are out-of-school in South Sudan are girls. Poverty, child marriage, and cultural and religious views all hinder girls’ education.
