FEATURE: South Sudan cattle camps serve as education hubs

Thomson Reuters Foundation, MINGKAMAN, South Sudan

Out of hundreds of camps across South Sudan, only about 10 have a school, with about 100 students each.

Keeping the schools running is not easy.

Children are brought to the camp to work, not to go to school, and women are expected to provide food, said Maker Maker, livelihood officer with Norwegian People’s Aid, another partner in the project, who trains the cattle keepers.

“It’s a slow progress, but my students are encouraged,” Awur said.
