Education Support Program South Sudan

Commitment by

GTZ

In 2007, the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) committed to expand its proven package of systemic educational interventions by planning and implementing the Education Support Program (ESP) in order to increase access to and quality of education for children recovering from conflict. In four selected states of South Sudan, it sought to provide up to 300,000 children enrolled in primary schools with an improved basic education, and up to 20,000 marginalized and out-of-school children and youth with non-formal education programs. ESP is comprised of formal and non-formal education components, as well as capacity development at all levels of intervention, and focuses on increasing gender balance by providing special support to and ensuring equal participation for girls and women.
