Malik Abiel Secondary School
PROJECT TITLE: Malik Abiel Secondary School
PROJECT LOCATION: Nyongrial at Baliet County, Sudan
PROJECT DURATION: 2010-2012
The twenty-two year old civil war between the North and South Sudan has shattered the social infrastructure of Southern Sudan. Clinics, schools and water points were all severely damaged in the conflict which came to an end in January 2005 with the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement. After that, thousands of peoples are returning to Southern Sudan particularly in Nyongrial area in Upper Nile State.
Currently, there is no single high school in the entire Baliet County and many students who have completed the elementary school normally skipped high school studies due to the lack of funds for students to attend high schools in the big cities like Malakal and Juba in Southern Sudan. Moreover, the parents required the government to provide boarding school facilities as well as school feeding programs to encourage them to send their children to school. However, the autonomy Government of Southern Sudan is struggling to gain a footing to rebuild the war-torn nation from the scratch. In response to these visible needs, the Padang Relief Society has planned to build the boarding secondary school facility in Nyongrial area to cater for the students from various remote areas in Baliet County. Moreover, PRS has acquired 60 acres land from the local government for the purpose of building the secondary school complex. As funds become available, the construction will commence in December 2010 and will be completed in March 2012. In addition, PRS will facilitate this secondary school untill 2017. Then, the school will be handed over to the Ministry of Education in Upper Nile State.
