Women’s Peace School, Akon, South Sudan

Our adult literacy program serves 200 women, most of whom are mothers of Kurnyuk students. Their mission statement identifies education as a key to change: “The Women’s Peace School empowers women who were not educated because of the war through life-changing knowledge and literacy. We believe that education is a basic human right and can enable women to be active participants in their community and their world.” The Kurnyuk School is evolving into a women’s peace empowerment center as the mothers’ program is now housed in the daughters’ school!
