Since the start of the Sudanese civil war in 1983, education has been denied and unavailable to most of the people of southern Sudan. Southern Sudan has one of the lowest literacy rates in the world, with only 20% of its people able to read.
The Christchurch School Chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) is partnering with the Hope and Resurrection School. NHS members created a beautiful banner to send to the Sudanese students and they are exchanging scrapbooks, picture and letters. NHS is also working to raise more money to be used for textbooks, desks, meals and scholarships.
