We're Turning 15!

We've watched as South Sudan has become the world's newest nation.  It's young women are hungry for education and eager to take on leadership roles.

Our Story

South Sudan is a fast-changing environment and since 2005, when PESS was formed, we have been adaptable in finding ways to best fulfill our educational mission.

Preparing Tomorrow's South Sudanese Leaders

Welcome to our new website!


We’re excited to bring a new look to Project Education South Sudan.  With this new website release we are introducing our new logo and many new ways to build and support our amazing community.

Our work began in 2005, in the southern part of what was then known as Sudan.  Since then, the region has become a new independent country with its own flag, its own identity and its own dreams.  These have proven to be difficult dreams to fulfill, but the resilience of the South Sudanese people cannot be overcome!

Although the past fifteen years have passed quickly, the road we have traveled has been long and often fraught with dangers.  In a nation torn by tribal conflict, education is a fragile thing to hold onto and to nurture.

In a troubled world, girls’ education has emerged as a critical need in building foundations and fortifying the important structures that an emerging nation requires.

Clearly, we’re not there yet, but we have accomplished so much!

We are happy to have you along on the journey.

Thanks for visiting!


In gratitude,

The Board of Directors
