At Hope secondary school and Thong Nhat Primary School in IDP Camp 01, Juba, UNMISS police officers and gender experts conducted sessions to raise awareness of the importance of education for 348 secondary and 1,363 primary schoolers. They also offered gender knowledge and gifts to female students.

The MoPS Task Force, through its Women's Union, provided much-needed school supplies for both schools. Nearly 2,000 notebooks, pencils, rulers, sharpeners, and pens were distributed to students, along with registration books, chalks, and marking pens for teachers.

The UNMISS Police Women Network added a touch of joy to the day by donating toys like hula hoops, jump ropes, soccer balls, and coloring materials to the children.

This marked the third charitable activity by the MoPS Women's Union, aiming to bring hope and support to African children impacted by internal conflicts and living in challenging conditions in IDP camps.
