The number of children in school keeps increasing, due to continuous sensitization of the community on the value of education. Currently, a total of 9,809 schoolchildren are supported by RMF/WCF funding in nursery, primary, and secondary schools including South Sudanese, Kenyan, Rwandan, Burundian, Ugandan IDP, and Congolese children/students.
