Yei Education Programme Evaluation Report
ACROSS is a Christian NGO operating exclusively in Southern Sudan. It first came into existence in 1972, and over the years it has changed its approach focusing on capacity building and training. The various activities it currently carries out e.g. Education, Community Health, Household Food Security, Radio, Publishing, Theological Education, Adult Literacy, and HIV/AIDS Awareness, are an effort to empower the churches and communities and help promote transformational development. Yei Education Programme was started in 2001 after an assessment done in November 2000 which identified two main needs in the education sector: need for trained teachers and school materials. According to the assessment, most of the teachers were volunteers who had very little or no training. The schools were under-staffed, especially in areas where teacher support was poor.
