This is the final London Marathon for which Jesuit Missions is submitting a team.

Please support our runners in raising money for this years important theme of 'Education in South Sudan' :

Jesuit Missions is working with Jesuits in South Sudan to support people in the world's youngest country as they struggle to overcome the devastating effects of decades of insecurity and civil war. There are about 9 million South Sudanese in need of humanitarian assistance (out of a total population of 12 million).

Together with our partners on the ground, we have expanded educational facilities, which were almost non-existent, particularly in early childhood development and girls' education. We help over 3000 people annually.

In South Sudan, only half of the teachers have completed secondary school. Likewise, the education infrastructure is poor with many students learning in inadequate corrugated structures or under the shade of trees. One trainee teacher explains her motivation: 'We are here for the betterment of future children. So they will not be like us who had untrained teachers.

Your donation will help where the need is greatest, and in South Sudan, your contribution can make a great difference:

£10 will provide a dignity and hygiene kit for a student in secondary school.

£25 will ensure that a secondary school student has one porridge meal a day for a month (or £250 for the whole year as students are in school for 10 months)

£55 will cover the cost of a female student or teachers monthly childcare for children under five.

£80 will support a young person through a year-long computer programming course.

Education is vital for nation-building. Help us provide quality education that will enable South Sudanese youth to thrive in this enormously challenging country!
