Vocational Training Center in South SudanAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Martin Lorot paints a bedframe he has constructed in the Vocational Training Center in Matara, a remote community in South Sudan's Eastern Equatoria State. The center is sponsored by the Holy Trinity Peace Village in nearby Kuron.
The region has been plagued by cattle raiding and child abduction in recent years. The Catholic Church-sponsored Holy Trinity Peace Village has worked for years to foster reconciliation and peace between the region's pastoralist communities. Equipping young people with job skills provides an alternative to cattle keeping.
The Peace Village is supported by Norwegian Church Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance.
