Tonj state to construct rehabilitation centre for street children
Tonj State Minister of Gender and Social Development, Mabil Ater, said his ministry is ready to begin the construction of a rehabilitation centre for street children in the state, once they receive financial support from development partners.
Ater told Radio Tamazuj on Monday that the construction which was planned last year could not be executed due to financial constraints.
“Each and every institution has a task to deliver and we are ready to start as government if we have support. If we receive support today we will start tomorrow because we as government we are ready to fulfil our obligation to provide for street children,” he said.
The minister, who called on financial and material support for the realization of the centre, said the presence of street children in Tonj is damaging the image of the state.
