A campaign to return girls to school in war-torn South Sudan is due to get underway, according to the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF).

The enrolment rate for girls has declined since the start of the conflict in December 2013, and many girls never make it past primary school.

That's according to Phuong Nguyen, UNICEF's chief education officer in the country.

She's been speaking to Regina Gorle about the campaign, ahead of Girls Education Day this Friday.
