Africa, S. Sudan, Juba<br />
South Sudan gained its independence from Sudan in 2011 and many still live in what seems to be temporary housing. It’s a dry sparse land with little ability for rural agriculture. Mary Sebit (28) is a goat herder. The non-governmental organization, BRAC, gave her mature goats that have now produced young goats. She has five children and she'll sell one goat a year for about $125 to send each of her kids to school. Her husband works as a policeman. She is here with her mother (50) who is ill and lives with them.
