Maban, 30 March 2016 – Pau Vidal SJ, JRS Maban Project Director, and Alvar Sanchez SJ, JRS Maban Education Coordinator, speak about the intervention of the Jesuit Refugee Service in northern South Sudan where JRS supports host community members, refugees and internally displaced persons in their pursuit of knowledge.

"Life is not only about a body to be fed, a body to be sheltered but life is also about meaning, learning and preparing for a future," said Pau Vidal SJ, JRS Project Director in Maban, South Sudan.

In Maban, JRS prioritizes educational opportunities for those on the margins by training teachers from refugee and host communities in English and teaching methodology as well as social studies, science and math.
