Closing date: 25 Oct 2019

BRAC is planning to start the implementation of the Community-based Education Project in South Sudan with geographical focus in Greater Equatoria area (former States of Central, Eastern and Western Equatoria) and former Northern Bar el Ghazal State. Through the components of Community Girls Schools (CGS) and Accelerated Learning Program (ALP), the project aims to improve the learning outcomes of formerly out of school children and youth, especially girls, in South Sudan through a scalable model of holistic community-based alternative education that has the potential to create a lasting effect on South Sudan’s Alternative Education System. This will be accomplished by achieving two interrelated intermediate outcomes – i) increased equitable access to safe, secure, quality, inclusive education and learning by marginalised children and adolescents, and ii) improved equitable and coordinated provision of innovative, safe, quality, gender-responsive and evidence-based non-formal primary education for children and adolescents.
