Helping South Sudanese refugees in Uganda to become self sufficient
In partnership with the Anglican Church of South Sudan, CRESS aims to help the South Sudanese refugees in Northern Uganda have the range of education, knowledge and vocational skills required to enable them to form self-sufficient, sustainable and ethical communities that do not require Western aid.
In the medium to long term, when the refugees can return to their homes in South Sudan, they should be able to take these skills with them and rebuild their communities.

On average, Ugandan schoolgirls reported missing 24 days out of 220 learning days in a year; translating into 11% of school days missed due to menstruation. Source.
