Minister of General Education and Instruction, Awut Deng Acuil, confirmed on Friday that the Ministry has received a $100 million donation from the World Bank.

Dr. Jacob Korok Majiu, Deputy Minister of Information, told the media after the Council of Ministers meeting.

He said the funds would be used to improve teacher’s training and construct schools throughout the country.

“The money will be used to boost the capacity of the teachers and the construction of schools throughout the country,” Dr. Majiuk explained. He added that the Ministry is working with the World Bank to launch the initiative upon receiving the funds.

This significant donation aims to address long-standing challenges in South Sudan’s education system. By enhancing teacher training and expanding school infrastructure, the World Bank’s contribution is expected to have a positive long-term impact on the country’s education sector.
