Girls’ Education Strategy for South Sudan 2015-2017
The core objective of the General Education Strategic Plan (GESP) 2012-2017 is “to eliminate barriers in Girl’s Education and promote gender equality throughout the education system”. To achieve equality and access to education, the government of South Sudan will take a leading role in advocating Girls’ Education. Since 2011, various consultations have taken place, which include high-level meetings with the National MoEST, discussions with all State MoEs, discussions with female lecturers, and ministers and members of the Parliament. In addition, validation meetings with state partners and the Gender Technical Working Group have laid the foundation for this strategy.
