Banana harvest in South Sudan peace villageAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Martha Lokidori and Maria Lokolong carry bananas on the demonstration farm of the Holy Trinity Peace Village in Kuron, a remote community in South Sudan's Eastern Equatoria State.
The region has been plagued by cattle raiding and child abduction in recent years. The Catholic Church-sponsored Holy Trinity Peace Village, centered in Kuron, has worked for years to foster reconciliation and peace between the region's pastoralist communities. The program has also educated local villagers on improved agricultural techniques.
The Peace Village is supported by Norwegian Church Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance.
