My name is Pau Vidal; I am Jesuit and Manager of the Maban project of the Jesuit Refugee service in South Sudan where currently there are 130.000 refugees and displaced people. Education is very important in violence contexts, in instability contexts because it provides certain normality, it allows children and youngsters to go to school every day so they can have a certain routine. But also and most importantly, it offers a protection space of their rights and it builds a better future, it offers the chance for people to think by themselves and don’t take back weapons again. Therefore, education means building a better future, a peaceful future.
