The handover ceremony to deliver the infrastructure for the St. Theresa, East Torit and West Torit primary schools to the South Sudanese Education Ministry is taking place today, 4 April 2012.
The structures include toilet facilities, at St. Teresa and West Torit, and a four-classroom pavilion, with offices, in East Torit.
The works were carried out by AVSI, a non-governmental organisation, with Italian Development Cooperation funding. The project was initiated in response to a severe education emergency in this region, which is almost entirely lacking in educational structures and has a low school attendance rate.
