One year in Sudan

It has been a year since I started working at Juba office in September 2010.

Juba city had been dramatically changed in one year.

A year ago, there were much rubbish in the city and dirty cracked plastic bottles were abandoned in all streets.
These days, rubbish bin for separating in 5 kinds were installed, number of paved roads were increasing and over 2 storied building had been constructed

On the other hand, there were many things which had not obviously changed.
I had been impressed that Africa had a lot of issues to be solved since I had come to Africa.
South Sudan, an inland country in huge continent, had many issues. Co-operation with neighbour countries was necessary to live in peace for people as some issues were not able to be solved by South Sudan itself.

I would never forget the light of people’s eyes after the independence. I strongly hoped that JEN support people not to be faded the light of that day.

I thanked for the fact that I am able to work with them and I would like to continue this work to let many people smile.
