Loreto Rumbek 10 Years: 2006 – 2016
This year Loreto Rumbek celebrates its 10th Birthday.
Who would have imagined that so much would have happened there in such a short time? The dream of providing Secondary Education for girls was a daunting task.
Our intrepid pioneers were constantly inspired by the vision of our founder Mary Ward, whose motto is that ‘Women in time will do much’.
A mere two years after arrival in Rumbek the new Loreto school welcomed its first students. Since then the school has gone from strength to strength with some graduates going on to train to be the future teachers. A thriving Primary School followed and its home has now moved from being under the trees to lovely new classrooms. Children are being fed as well as being taught. Parents and small children are being assisted and so the Mission develops. Congratulations to you all.
