I was blessed with the opportunity to visit VICS volunteer, Luc, in South Sudan. Luc has been in Juba since November, 2013. He was evacuated mid December when the war broke out, returned January, 2014, and has been volunteering since that time.
Luc has been at the Catholic University of South Sudan. He has worked directly with staff, supporting and implementing changes they requested.
A new university is slowly being built. Some students are at the old university campus and others are now attending the new university. Phase 1 of 3 is complete and construction is under way for phase 2.
These are pictures of the old campus:
Construction of phase 2:
What great work this university is doing! From it’s inception in 2008 with 35 students, they have grown to a university with 900 students. What a wonderful testament to hard work and hope.
