La Salle Secondary School Rumbek, South Sudan
South Sudanâ€™s 2018 academic report card showed lots of failures. With only one-third of the country literate and less than 5% of eligible youth attending high school, the country ranked as the most educationally-challenged in the world. To address this situation and train the next generation of leaders, a new high school is nearing completion in Rumbek, South Sudan.
In response to the civil unrest, refugee crisis, economic collapse, and dire need for better educational opportunities, the Lasallian Community responded with the rest of the world and our church to the needs in South Sudan. With the support of many others, including many of you, we opened a boyâ€™s high school in Rumbek, South Sudan.
On any given day, 255 secondary school students can be found tending to their lessons and assignments in a corner of the world where less than 5% of eligible youth attend high school in what has been called the most educationally challenged country in the world.
Rooted in the society and culture of the Dinka people, language, culture, citizenship, extracurriculars in sports and culture, a sports festival one semester and a cultural festival the other semester of the school year – young men are able to round out their academic work with these other opportunities. They are set on the road to success and leadership. Thank you for your care and support.
