Ministry of Education in Central Equatoria State is asking for more support from the Norwegian Refugee Council and other NGOs in fighting illiteracy in the country.

224 students graduated yesterday after completing nine-month courses of Basic Adult Literacy under the NRC.

At the graduation ceremony, the director for quality promotion in the state’s Ministry of Education, Amos Longa, told the graduates to continue their education.

“Education is the key to the therapy, education is a weapon, when you go to your respective areas, please let’s engage yourselves to those canters so that we improve the skills we have acquired and further it for the benefit of our country” He said.

Eye Radio spoke to some graduates and this is what they said.

“I came in Juba in 2010 and I had learnt Arabic. But now am very happy in South Sudan; in Juba City because I now I speak English; reading and learning.” one said.

“I ended my primary level in 1986 in primary six and then in 1978 I joined SPLA. So that is why I came here to join this course because my English is little. And that this time I was not able to write and read and talk even just few words. But now that I have joined this course, I really appreciate because am now talking in English.” and another.
