South Sudan: learning in emergencies

Maban, 10 August 2015 – In South Sudan's Upper Nile state, a student is more likely to find soldiers occupying their school than teachers preparing lessons. Sixty-three percent of schools are occupied by armed forces. Even more of a rare commodity than functioning school buildings are teachers themselves. "The government is basically not present here... they are devoting most of the resources into warfare so they are interested in defense, in military and therefore education, social services, health are very minimal," said Pau Vidal SJ, JRS Maban project director.

Kenya: journey to self-reliance

Nairobi, 17 June 2015 – As countries around the globe continually implement policies to push back and exclude migrants and refugees, they are missing out on a vital opportunity to push their communities forward. Kenya is no exception. After Ethiopia, Kenya is Africa's second largest refugee-hosting country, with more than 500,000 refugees within its borders. As emergency crises escalate in Burundi and South Sudan, and protracted crises in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia and elsewhere continue, this number is likely to grow. In fact, nearly 50,000 South Sudanese refugees have already arrived in Kenya this year.

Kenya: never fail to try

Nairobi, 6 July 2015 – Just a three-hour drive outside the Kenyan capital of Nairobi and any visitor will feel they have entered another world. The area known as Maasai land is mostly inhabited by indigenous Maasai. The Maasai are known for their nomadic lifestyle, but have begun to settle due to modern-day pressures. Most have only completed basic levels of education and are now trying to adapt to a new labour market as they move away from nomadism.
