Sister Sandra Amado, a Comboni sister from Brazil, laughs as she teaches a class at a teacher training course 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 is teaching in Agok are among tens of thousands of people displaced in 2011 attacks by soldiers and militias from the northern Republic of Sudan.
