Giving MBSS Girls a Voice

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."

— Helen Keller

The VAD Foundation is honored to be an ongoing featured organization with Girls' Globe for our continued commitment to girls' education in South Sudan. In the past month, Girls' Globe and Women Deliver, both dedicated to raising awareness about global issues concerning the rights, health, and empowerment of women and girls, commended the VAD Foundation for its support of girls in South Sudan. Girls' Globe and Women Deliver highlight the significance of MBSS’s increased enrollment rates, hiring of teachers, and microloans to female head of households in Marial Bai.

Through community efforts, the organization is seeking to bridge the gap between traditional female roles by demonstrating the importance and benefit of equal education for girls.

The Marial Bai Secondary School and the VAD Foundation provide opportunities for education by ensuring girls can focus on their schoolwork and themselves. We are proud to promote girls' education, and thank these blogs for their features!
