Fields of Life began working in South Sudan since February 2015 when we funded the drilling of our first well with our South Sudan water partners, since then we have completed nine wells bringing clean water to approximately 9,000 people.
In March 2015 Fields of Life embarked on its first education programme in South Sudan.
Six students, four from our partners in Ibba and two from Maridi, commenced a two year teacher training course at Solidarity Teacher Training College, in Yambio and in November 2016 five of the students graduated. Not only has the training at Solidarity College changed the lives and perspectives of the teachers receiving training, it will enable them to go on and positively impact many thousands of children in future years.
In 2016 Fields of Life completed our first partner school in South Sudan, Onjirima Primary School, which provides education for 210 pupils.
In 2017, a year when over 2.4 million people were seeking refuge in surrounding countries, Fields of Life were faithful to the church and the people remaining in Maridi and Ibba, South Sudan. Thanks to the generous support of individual donors and African Revival we continued to assist by building and furnishing Downey College, a seven-class Secondary School in Ibba; adding four classes to Haddow Secondary School; four classes at Kazana II Primary School in Maridi and completing the construction of a much-needed wash and shower block at the Maridi Diocesan Guesthouse.
