Children write during a lesson on August 17,2012 at a primary school in Yei. School enrollment has increased dramatically since South Sudan gained independence from Sudan in July 2011 after decades of civil war, but funding for teachers, buildings and supplies is still lacking in the impoverished nation. Aid agencies fear that successes will be undone in an ailing economy following the government's decision to shut down oil production in January 2012 due to disputes with Sudan over oil production and profits.
