Produced by Medical Aid Films, this film showcases how UK aid’s Girls’ Education South Sudan (GESS) is reaching more than 200,000 girls in the famine and conflict-hit country.
Despite insecurity, economic collapse and logistical struggles, the GESS programme is continuing to successfully deliver its aim of educating the poorest and most vulnerable girls, transforming a generation through education.
Over the last three years, the programme has reached over 3500 schools, with more than 9000 grants funding classrooms, latrines, books and much more. Over 300,000 cash transfers have been paid to more than 180,000 girls, while two million people have been reached through radio programmes aimed at changing the negative socio-cultural attitudes towards educating girls.
GESS is an initiative of the Ministry of General Education and Instruction of South Sudan and funded by UK aid from the UK government. MoGEI is supported by a consortium, led by Cambridge Education, a member of the Mott MacDonald Group, and including BBC Media Action, Charlie Goldsmith Associates and Winrock International.
