Tomorrow is the official start of all schools here in South Sudan, the youngest nation on this planet.
You can come with me to Queen's Nursery & Primary School here in the outskirt of Juba the capital of South Sudan.
The preparations have been going on for a while.
I have been lucky to be working on this project with the local community and my colleague Rog; thank you for your great effort!
This school will open tomorrow after two years without any school for this children.
They are all so very excited!!!
And they all need new uniforms; so this weekend the tailors came to the village to measure all the kids for their new school uniforms. All the kids were queuing patiently. They were excited, very proud and some of the youngest were afraid.
Thank you so much Jerry Bueno and Atle Haugland for your contribution to help them getting school uniforms! I also want to say a huge thank you to Ahmed احمد كون who supports us every step along this road.
Many months of planning will come to an end on Monday morning and many happy kids will finally be back in school.
New hope for the future of this young country.
