Mother of Mercy Supports South Sudan with Social Media Contest Winnings
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Young women in South Sudan are learning about leadership, computer skills, and gender based violence.
Their lessons are made possible by people in Cincinnati.
In late summer, Mother of Mercy won 10,000 dollars in a social media contest. It donated the money to Mercy Beyond Borders, an organization run by Sister Marilyn Lacey that works to educate girls in South Sudan.
42 young women took part in the course, and despite violence that occurred 100 miles away, they were able to complete their studies.
