South Sudan is one of the most conflicted countries on the continent of Africa. But at Loyola Secondary School (LSS) in Wau, lay teachers and Jesuits have been working determinably to provide quality education to students. They will be—in the Ignatian tradition—men and women for others, capable of being forces for peace and sustainable development.
LSS is a co-educational day school established in the year 1982. Due to civil wars and turmoil in South Sudan, the school had to close down after only two years until 2008. It is now going from strength to strength with almost 600 young adults attending as both fee-paying students and as scholarship recipients.
The school contributes to SDG 4:’ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning’ of the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.
