More than four-hundred South Sudanese Immigrant children in the camps of Khartoum, Sudan not stepping their feet to schools, says Chiefs Representative.
 
In Naivasha Camp, Raphael Justin Zangabai explained to the Catholic Radio Network or CRN that many kids are in the streets due to high rates of school fees.
 
He added that many schools are paid in hard currencies because they are foreigners in the Sudan, yet they cannot afford it.
 
Another young refugee, a head of a family is dismayed on how most of the young men become thieves and consuming drugs due to intolerance of the situation.
 
He urges South Sudan Embassy in the Sudan to assist the refugees on latrines and finding educational opportunities for their children.
 
Young girls at the camp insisted to complete their education to afford something for their families, but fire broke out and burned all their books.
 
The girls added that they think of working at companies because their mothers are suffering doing laundry in people's houses which they do not like.
 
The Catholic Church Parliamentary Liaison Coordinator at Sudan and South Sudan Catholic Bishops Conference Isaac Kenyi said the situation of South Sudanese in Khartoum is very complex because most of them were forced by conflicts.
 
He asked civil society organizations to lobby the international community to look at the status of the South Sudanese to be considered as refugees.
 
The educational situation of the South Sudanese immigrants is dire with many children becoming street kids and some playing around the camp.
 
Many refugees are in Naivasha Camp for over six years.
