The Education Cluster is a coordination mechanism to ensure that all actors - Ministry of Education, UN agencies and NGOs - work together to ensure all children and youth affected by crises in South Sudan have access to protective education opportunities.  Education is a fundamental human right for all people and is particularly critical for children and youth affected by conflict and disasters. 

This website is a forum for information sharing between the Education Clusters at National and State levels, as well as between cluster partners. Please send any questions or contributions for the website to edclusterjuba.un@gmail.com or edclusterjuba.ngo@gmail.com.
