Children in the Kapuri community in South Sudan’s Central Equatoria State are celebrating the opening of a school built by UN peacekeepers from Rwanda (UNMISS)
The project was born following a routine patrol last year in which the soldiers found pupils in the town studying under trees in make-shift classrooms with no sanitation facilities.
The newly constructed building has eight classrooms, two staff offices and washrooms.
The project was taken from the Rwandan tradition called “umuganda” or community work which also helps promote reconciliation after the genocide.
