It is our belief that rational thinking is a function of literacy , and we believe we can break the cycle of wars in South Sudan through education. Self-reliance cannot be realised through the provision of food material from UNHCR and other UN agencies.

Garang, I was born in 1998. My father Bullen Ayuen Mabior died of Gangrene resulting from an old bullet wound. Since his passing in early 2005, we have been left under care of our strong-hearted mother, Ajah Thiong Biar. Sometimes we feel like she is not  going to cope but most of the time we feel we need her to provide. But how much more can a mother of 5 with no husband and no job do?  But she has managed, so as you can see I now in grade 9 (Form 2), and if life permits, I may progress. So my siblings and I have accepted the hard fact that if we have not die today we may live for another day.
