Hundreds of disadvantaged children in Aweil South County in Northern Bahr el Ghazal State will soon start learning in a modern class after faith-based organization started construction of their school.
“We hope it is going to end the problems we have been facing since we started taking care of orphans in 2016,” John Wek Wol, pastor, told Akol Yam.
Over the years, the over 400 orphans have been receiving lessons in tree shades – classes that rain and flooding kept interrupting.
Last weekend, War Alive Christians Church and its partner Windle Trust started construction of orphanage school at Malek.
The church has been providing free education to over four hundred children with no parents, 180 of whom live at the church compound. The other children are staying with their relatives.
“We have only accommodated few of them that we can feed with the little meals we are getting from well-wishers,” Pastor Wek said.
He further stated that there are twelve professional teachers providing good education to the students.
