For nearly 3 years the Nuba people have been living under the shadow of conflict in Sudan. Almost every school in the Nuba mountain’s state of south Kordofan has been bombed or damaged by attacks, and at least 40% remain closed.
Many children have no school to go to or are too afraid to attend. Tunguli modern Primary School headmaster Butrus, says his school was bombed last year and he now holds lessons under trees close to the safety of Caves. One of the challenges which we have here in the Nuba Mountains is security. Secondly, the school stationery is not available. The books we have here are for teachers exclusively. These books are not enough for students to use.
