Description : When a conflict broke out in the community between two tribes, the school was burned down. The principal taught the children under the shade of a tree and collected donations from community members to rebuild the school. The ICRC later intervened and helped to resolve the conflict. It donated materials so that the community could come together and rebuild the school. Today, the students of the school come from both sides of the conflict.
