Stories for Change
The quarterly Christian World Service newsletter features stories from our partners. They are working in local communities to turn violence, poverty and injustice into hope.
Latest issue: Starting from Scratch
In South Sudan, there are people with vision and courage. As students in Uganda, Wadalla and his friends dreamed of building the new South Sudan. When they came home for holidays, they tutored some of the classes in Maridi’s poorly equipped schools.
By the time independence came in 2011, they had started a high school, three preschools (though one has closed), a clinic for HIV testing and Maridi FM, the only local radio. All of this with your support.
Maridi County has experienced the violence that has engulfed the country. Always the Maridi Service Agency has helped settle some of the many people who have sought safety in Maridi. They are working hard to make peace happen despite the violence and severe poverty throughout the country.
