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.
