Sister Sandra Amado (in hat), a Comboni sister from Brazil, celebrates the end of a special teacher training course with her students in Agok, a town in the contested border region of Abyei between Sudan and South Sudan. Sister Amado is a volunteer with Solidarity with South Sudan, an international network of Catholic groups providing training for teachers, health care workers, and pastoral agents in South Sudan. The teachers she taught in Agok are among tens of thousands of people displaced in 2011 attacks by soldiers and militias from the northern Republic of Sudan. .
