The Holy Trinity Peace Village initiative founded by Bishop Paride Taban has become an oasis of hope to vulnerable populations in South Sudan and is now reaching out to school-going children who relied on the Centre for their educational needs before COVID-19 lockdown was declared in the East-Central African nation.
In an organizational newsletter released Monday, August 10 titled, “An Oasis of Peace and Love”, the management of Holy Trinity Peace Village notes that the facility, established to unite warring communities in the South-eastern part of South Sudan, has stood the test of time.
The peace village is now reaching out to vulnerable children who no-longer access facilities of the Centre owing to COVID-19 lockdown measures put in place to contain the spread of the virus in the country.
Kuron Peace village is located in the remote Eastern Equatoria State where there is poor Internet connectivity and limited mobile communication access, according to the management of the peace village whose staff are now conducting physical visits to children’s homes to deliver to them learning materials.
“With Kuron settings, where there is no form of media and access to virtual communication, the early child care education caregivers resorted to mobile teaching in the villages. This is to help learners not to forget what they learnt,” the managers of Kuron explain in their newsletter.
