The ministry of general education and instruction of South Sudan in partnership with UNHCR launched Refugees Education Information Management System (REMIS), a new data collection and analysis tool to help improve monitoring and planning of education programs for refugee children living in South Sudan.

This tool aims to bridge the gap in refugee education data and help better plan programs that promote the inclusion of refugee children and adolescents in the national education system, as well as allow them to benefit from the Global Partnership for Education.

According to the latest figures, refugee children are five times more likely to be out of school than non-refugee children.
