Ndoromo Primary School is in Ndoromo village, 84kms from Yambio in South Sudan. Due to political unrest the children had no schooling for 10 years, until 2018 when funding was found for the school, teachers were sourced and the school re-opened. Three years on, the funding has run out. Without further funding the school will not be able to open again in April 2021 when the schools across South Sudan are expected to re-open. All donations received for this project will go directly to re-opening the school; remuneration for teachers, stationery, and the purchase of 2 more motorbikes for the teachers to travel each week from Yambio to the remote village. During the week, in their spare time, teachers also run adult education classes. Sr Margaret Scott RNDM appreciates previous support received from our donors in Australia for education in Sudan, and hopes this request for funding to re-open the school is successful.
