A Difficult Promise to Keep in Southern Sudan

A group of women from the U.S. return to Sudan, a nation ravaged by 21 years of civil war, to make good on a promise they made six years before the fighting ended: to build a school for girls in a poor, remote village in the southern part of the country. But the women will have to face down economic challenges and cultural differences in order to fulfill their vow. Part of a two-part series from National Public Radio's "All Things Considered."
