Achol*, 13, South Sudan
Achol*, a 13-year-old from South Sudan, had her education interrupted by flooding and war.
Dear World Leaders,
My name is Achol*. I am 13 years old in a primary school in South Sudan. I live with my mother and experience many challenges. My mother lost her job when the war broke out in the country years back. Affording learning materials is very difficult. Flooding became a problem as our home is a 35 minute walk away from school. I have a passion to learn and I want to become a doctor to achieve my dream and education. I want Education Cannot Wait (ECW) to continue supporting education in South Sudan so that I complete my education.
I will be very grateful when my letter reaches you in the near future.
