79 New Students Enrolled: Q4 2016

May 24, 2017 - 

We continue to provide financial support and guidance for the four departments at RMF’s Panyadoli Vocational Training Institute (PVTI). During this reporting period:

Goboro Border Emergency: April 2017

May 16, 2017 - 

It is now extremely difficult for refugees fleeing from South Sudan to find a safe path into Uganda, because neither the rebels nor the government forces in South Sudan will allow civilians to flee the country. Currently, all the border points are unsafe except for Goboro, which is a refugee’s one chance, traveling on footpaths and through the bush, to arrive safely in Uganda. Thus, a majority of people wishing to flee the violence, food insecurity, inflation, and lack of services in South Sudan trail quietly through the bush to access Goboro and enter Uganda. Only then does the...
