Students in Northern Bahr el-Ghazal State of South Sudan in a temporary classroom set up so they can continue to learn while they wait for a permanent school to be built.  Since the Consolidated Peace Agreement (PCA), the number of classrooms in the country has increased but school infrastructure remains an overwhelming need. Despite recent investments by a few key donors 70% of learning is done under tents, in the open air, or in semi-permanent structures. New efforts by USAID seek to address this problem.
