Friends of Ibba Girls School


Exciting Opportunities to Teach and Work in South Sudan
Help to lead an imaginative new girls boarding school, in Ibba County, Western Equatoria State.

They are inviting expressions of interest (by Friday 25th October) in the following jobs which will form the initial team to lead and manage Ibba Girls Boarding School from its opening in February 2014.

  • Head Teacher
  • Deputy Head Teacher
  • Primary Classroom Teacher
  • Financial Manager
  • School Matron (ideally with a nursing qualification)

Expressions of interest in these jobs are welcome from committed and qualified people in South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, and other Sub-Saharan African countries – and also (in supportive roles) from people in the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand who are willing to go to live in Ibba, working shoulder to shoulder alongside the African staff, and to share their experience with them, in the initial months and years of the school.

They particularly welcome expressions of interest from among the South Sudanese diaspora, who may be willing to consider going back home to work for a period.

Ibba is situated between Yambio and Maridi in Western Equatoria State. It is about 2 hours by road from Yambio, and 45 minutes from Maridi, Ibba also has its own small airstrip which is used for flights by light aircraft (e.g. by Mission Aviation Fellowship).

The school is being built in stages on a beautiful 73 acre forest site in Ibba, and the facilities to teach and accommodate the first 40 girls will be complete by the end of 2013. The buildings so far include a gate house and perimeter fence; solar powered water bore hole; classroom block; dormitories; wash block; kitchen; dining room; toilets; generator block.  Please click here for more information.
