Progress is being made though education in the Republic of South Sudan. Organizations working to set up education systems such as USAID, the Valentino Achak Deng Foundation (VADF), and UNICEF have made radical progress, raising the enrolled number of primary school students from 300,000 in 2000 to 1.4 million in 2010. Progress such as this is imperative during South Sudan's fragile first years as a nation.
