During the 1990's the county of Twic was the location in which CASS worked to help free 10,400 slaves. Also during this time CASS began it's program of school-building, with 6 schools eventually being built in Twic. The county is divided into 6 administrative districts, called Payams, and one school was built in each Payam.

Another program that CASS has been involved with is helping to establish the YMCA/YWCA in southern Sudan. The first YMCA was established in Twic in the community of Mayen Abun in 2003.
