Hundreds and thousands of school age South Sudanese children living as refugees in Ethiopia are being given a chance to get an education.

The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) has opened schools in the Kule camp located in the Gambela region of Western Ethiopia.

More than 270,000 refugees from South Sudan were already being hosted in the region when a conflict re-ignited on December 2013, bringing in 220,000 new arrivals.

Jocelyne Sambira has the story.
