Sudan Sunrise will break ground along with Manute Bol for a new school in Turalei, not far from Abyei, for some 300 children who have no school except the shade of trees. According to Bol this will give Sudan a giant example of reconciliation. His school will welcome Darfurian and other Muslim students. And Darfurians are volunteering to help build it as a sign of reconciliation.
This move toward reconciliation is quite significant in light of what the New York Times warns is a “fragile” peace between the Muslim North and the largely Christian and Animist South. For more about the project,Sudan Sunrise. Then scroll down to Manute Bol Turalei School Project.
