School sign in South SudanAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
A sign at the entry to the St. Thomas Primary School in 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. Bringing children from different tribes in one school, where English is the common language, is one element of the peacebuilding. Children from the Jie, Murle, Dinka, Nuer, Madi, Katiko, Acholi and Toposa tribes attend the school.
