Who will benefit from GESS?

GESS activities will primarily benefit 200,000 girls in upper-primary and secondary schools across all the ten states. An estimated 300,000 boys will also benefit from the improved learning environment.


Education management will also benefit from the introduction of an electronic attendance monitoring system – South Sudan School Attendance Monitoring Systems (SSSAMS) or Ana Fii Inni (I am here). Teachers and education managers will receive training and their strengthened skills will improve the quality of education. Parents and communities will also be targeted by awareness raising activities aimed at improving their understanding of the value of education and changing attitudes towards girls’ education.
