He was educated in Uganda where he was a refugee during Sudan's long civil war. The conflict ruined the education system in South Sudan and caused a generation of South Sudanese to miss basic schooling. Lack of infrastructure and qualified teachers risks to prolong the situation.Kapoeta, South Sudan.Photo © J.B. Russell
