The team leader of the Girls’ Education South Sudan is advising parents and teachers to ensure school girls receive their cash transfers safely and transparently.

On Monday, over 400,000 schoolgirls started receiving cash transfers across the country.

According to the program, school girls in primary 8, and senior 4 will receive 32,000 pounds each, while girls in primary 5, 6, 7, and senior 1, 2, and 3 will receive 25,600 pounds each.

Akuja de Garang, the project team leader called on them to support the school girls as they start receiving their yearly cash transfers.

Girls’s Education South Sudan cash transfers are direct payments to girls who are regularly attending school in different classes mainly in the primary.

It aims to address the high rate of schoolgirl dropouts particularly those transitioning from Primary to Secondary school.

The program is also to help improve girls’ access to quality education and to boost social inclusion.

“Let’s make sure that our girls are safe during this process as we have communicated, this is important for the benefit of our country.

“Let’s look at the bigger picture, we might say you want to take five pounds or ten pounds from what they have,

“But these five or ten pounds have a huge impact on the future of this young lady who is the future of South Sudan. So please let’s protect them and make sure they receive the money in full and safely, ” said De Garang while speaking on Eye Radio’s Dawn show on Wednesday.
