Refugees who fled political conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo learn new agricultural techniques in a refugee camp in Panyume, South Sudan. The class is conducted by World Renew, a member of the ACT Alliance, which also provides participants with seeds and tools. South Sudan is hosting refugees from neighboring countries at the same time tens of thousands of South Sudanese have fled the country in the wake of political violence that broke out in December 2013. That conflict quickly ripped apart regions of the young nation along ethnic and tribal lines. The ACT Alliance is providing a variety of services to both refugees and internally displaced families throughout the country.
