No Schooling in Sudan

 6.9 million girls and boys, one in three school-aged children, do not go to school in Sudan. 

A further 12 million will have their school years heavily interrupted by a lack of sufficient teachers and infrastructure.

“No country can afford to have one-third of its school-age children with no basic literacy, numeracy, or digital skills. Education is not just a right – it’s also a lifeline,” says Mandeep O’Brien - UNICEF Representative in Sudan.
