THE STORY:

Bira, South Sudan, rests on the border of Uganda and is home to the Ketebo people. During the half a century of civil war Sudan has suffered through, Birans have been removed from their homes on several occasions, only recently establishing themselves in the region again. As Southern Sudan moves to establish itself with newly elected officials and a fresh constitution there is an opportunity to create an atmosphere in which Southern Sudanese can learn the skills required to make up for lost time.

BEAD represents a new method of empowerment of communities by putting the onus of school management on the staff and members of the community, giving them the tools to do so effectively. Current projects are underway for a primary and secondary school that will bring many benefits to the education system in the region, as well as supplemental courses for both children and adults. One of the most important aspects of this is an internet facility that will give Birans access to whatever information they require from anywhere world.
