We are now collecting school fees for 2017. For $200 USD (or 14,000 SSP), you can sponsor a Juba Orphanage student for a full year of schooling. In 2016, we were able to pay for learning materials, school books, uniforms and shoes. But, due to the rising exchange rate, we unfortunately did not have enough funds to support after-school tutoring this year.
Your continued support will help us ensure that not only do all the children attend school with their peers, but also excel with the help of after-school tutoring. Thank you!
Please note that the exchange rate has risen drastically in recent months, and while the official rate is USD $1 = SSP 57.5 (USD $100 = SSP 5,750), the market rate in Juba is much higher (USD $1 = SSP 70, or USD $100 = 7,000).
