RUMBEK, 24 October 2016 [Gurtong]-
The money is intended to encourage enrolment and retention of girls by providing cash transfers to girls in education.

The cash transfers are direct payments made to girls enrolled in and regularly attending school. They encourage girls to enrol in and attend school, help them to buy things they need in order to attend school, and contribute to poverty reduction in the family and the community.

The BRAC team leader of girl’s education support department in Rumbek , David Aguaga Okello urged parents and guardians that Brac does not expect any deduction or grabbing of the money from the girls.

“The organisation does not want to hear such a report but if it happens, we welcome such report; the girl who is affected should come to us and we shall follow up the case seriously.”

He said the initiative, which is targeting 17,000 schoolgirls in Greater Lakes State, is meant to help the girls stay in school.

Mr. Okello told Gurtong that each schoolgirl receives 2,300 South Sudanese pound.

The Director General in Western Lakes State Ministry of Education, Alfred Agolder Mathok also warned parents and guardians against misusing schools financial assistance.

“The payment of cash money transfer Program is targeting 2000 learners particularly girls starting from primary four up to primary eight.”
