Ek wil my deelname aan die Comrades benut om fondse in te samel om die kinders van Soedan en Suid Soedan te help. Daar is ‘n AKKUTE tekort aan geletterdheid veral in Suid Soedan en deur die S4J maak ons ‘n verskil in die lewens van kinders om hul lewenstaak en -potensiaal te bereik. Help my asb om ‘n verskil in van hierdie kinders se lewens te maak deur die S4J.
I would like to use my participation in the Comrades to raise funds and help the children of Sudan and South Sudan. There is an accute literacy problem, especialy in South Sudan. Through S4J we can make a difference in the children's lives and help them to reach their potential. Please help me to help them to change their lives for the better.
Education in South Sudan
“Illiteracy rates are high in the country. In 2011, it is estimated that more than eighty percent of the South Sudanese population cannot read or write. The challenges are particularly severe for female children. South Sudan has proportionately fewer girls going to school than any other country in the world. According to UNICEF, fewer than one percent of girls complete primary education. One in four students is a girl and South Sudan maintains the highest female illiteracy rate in the world. Education is a priority for the Southern Sudanese and they are keen to make efforts to improve the education system.”
