$30 Million Donation to South Sudan
Over the next three years, South Sudan will be receiving a $30 million development package from Plan International. Nigel Chapman, the CEO of Plan International says that the funds will be given to support the South Sudan educational system. The donation will also help to employ the youth and give support to humanitarian work.
“We are committed to working with the Government of South Sudan to defend the right of marginalized children, especially girls to ensure that they access education and to also eliminate child poverty,” Chapman told reporters in the capital, Juba.
Chapman has been working with the South Sudan government to prevent cases of child abuse including teen pregnancies and child labor. “This [collaboration] has led to a decline in cases of child abuse in the country,” says Chapman.
Plan international has invested $30 million dollars to their develepment projects since 2006, and has helped peace-building, clean water, education, community health and more.
