During September Pope Francis asks us to pray 'That young people in Africa may have access to education and work in their own countries.

"...When we were younger we would often say I don’t want to go to school...But what if you never had a choice? What if you weren’t allowed to go to school?...How would you react? We say in our local community in South Sudan that if you educate a girl you will educate the village, if you educate a boy you educate a family. But the challenge is getting the boys and girls to school. In this world the elders value the traditional life and customs. They struggle to change, to allow young people to be educated. But education is the great changer, young people are transformed by education.."
