STONE GRANT - Samuel is one of eight South Sudanese recipients of the grant this year.

Samuel Abuvu Paul, 24, has worked as a guard – with MSF in Mundri, South Sudan since May 2017. Like many of the places MSF works in South Sudan, young, bright, dedicated students in Mundri have had to flee armed-conflict to save their lives, thereby losing opportunities to continue their schooling. To address such issues and increase the capacity of our South Sudanese colleagues, MSF started the STONE and Study grants. Samuel is one of eight South Sudanese recipients of the grant this year. The scholarship will allow him to study engineering at the International University of East Africa, in Uganda.
