Celebrating Young Women Attending School in South Sudan

Jan 9, 2013

Hélène Biandudi, on assignment in South Sudan, talked with Beth Adams this morning about how South Sudan is celebrating the 2005 peace agreement that allowed young women to attend school. 

Hélène was also able to attend a special ceremony commemorating the tribal chief of Myan Abun, who recently passed away, and was instrumental in supporting the education of young women in South Sudan. 

This is part of WXXI’s reporting and civic engagement initiative around Schools for South Sudan, which explores issues related to education, diversity and racism locally and around the world. Schools for South Sudan is supported in part by The Community Foundation. Follow Hélène's reporting trip on Twitter: @HeleneWXXI and #SouthSudanEd
