Working for education and reconciliation in South Sudan. With more than a century of work in the world’s newest and one of its poorest nations, Presbyterian World Mission, serving with committed Christian partners, is poised to help South Sudan move toward a brighter future. Our partners, the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan (PCOSS) and the ecumenical group Across, feel a strong sense of call and responsibility to provide a quality education for South Sudanese children that instills Christian values. Likewise, our partner RECONCILE (Resource Center for Civil Leadership), another ecumenical group, is committed to building peace in the name of Jesus Christ. Presbyterian World Mission has joined with these partners to assist and empower them in developing their capacity to respond to these needs. The goal of the South Sudan Education and Peace Building Initiative is to increase access to a basic effective Christian education for the children of South Sudan and to promote peace and reconciliation in South Sudan necessary for schools to function, the nation to heal and communities to develop. This will be accomplished through: strengthening the education programs of the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan, supporting the peace building work of RECONCILE and the provision of two mission co-workers to accompany our partners in this challenging task.
