Education initiative motivates parents to send their children to school instead of working in cattle camps
Out of her seven siblings, Veronica, 12, is the first in her family to go to school. “My parents can barely feed us, let alone send us to school”, she shares. Warrap State’s Tonj East County in South Sudan is among the communities affected by inter-communal conflicts, cattle raids, floods and hunger crisis. Life is unbearable for many thus sending children to school is not a priority.
