Of the 2.5 million school-aged children in need of lifesaving and lifesustaining education, the Education Sector aims to reach 400,000 boys and girls in 2015 with Education in Emergency (EiE) support, with funding requirement of USD $ 59.5 million. EiE key activities focuses on reaching children in need with the provision of temporary learning spaces (TLS) (benefitting 180,000), WASH in schools (175,000), education supplies (400,000), alongside school feeding (895,000).
UNICEF urgently still needs $1 million for the second S3M child survival survey in 2016. The locality level S3M 2013 survey results were critical in defining the Humanitarian Needs Overview 2015 and the ongoing 2016 HNO. The S3M is therefore an important investment for the broader humanitarian response, especially the health, nutrition, water and sanitation sectors.
The UNICEF Sudan humanitarian appeal for 2015 is 62% unfunded. The worst affected sectors are Education and Child Protection.
Since onset of the South Sudan crisis in December 2013, there have been 10,151 recorded cases of unaccompanied, separated and missing children in 39 counties across 9 of the 10 states. Out of these, 2,136 children have been reunified with their families.
Considering the resource-heavy nature of the intervention, sufficient and timely funding is required, giving provision for the duration for reunification so as to enable more efficient response.
