South Sudan: Hope and Resurrection School
Hope and Resurrection School is a secondary school for boys and girls in Atiaba, South Sudan. It is one of only 22 high schools in South Sudan, which has 1.5 million children and one of the world’s highest rates of illiteracy. St. Alban’s has helped build a girls’ dormitory for 74 students, funds two scholarships for girls and pays the annual salary of an assistant headmaster and an English teacher. Students and staff stay in touch with St. Alban's so we can keep up with their progress, and recently shared the school's 10th anniversary report. Contact: Josepha Musabyemariya
