The Acholi people are indigenous to Lobone. But, because of the civil war between the Sudan government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Army, thousands of people fled their homes, with many going to refugee camps in Uganda.
In 2001, JRS was invited by the Diocese of Torit to assist the community in both providing quality basic education and in pastoral activities.
