Education is a challenge for South SudanListen /
One of the challenges facing the new African nation of South Sudan is providing education to its children.
Decades of war have left almost three-quarters of adults illiterate in the country.
Since South Sudan seceded from the north in July 2011, it has struggled to build an education system for children and to educate the millions of adults who missed out on school during the war.
In Upper Nile State, the Ministry of General Education has introduced a new curriculum which has been packaged and distributed to all states.
