By Peter Gatkuoth

The Africa Child Care Nation has distributed learning materials to Future Nursery and Primary School at Mangateen.

Speaking to Juba Monitor during the event, Adia James Sebit education officer for Africa Child Care Nation said they were glad to have distributed learning materials to three schools.

“We are disturbing the Christian Religion Education reading books that will help them to know the words of God. This year we are looking forward to sponsoring students who don’t afford to pay school fees, Adia said.

She promised that the next generation would not be the same with the current generation, adding that they wanted a society where education was prioritized.

“We shall have society where all citizens are educated and they shall be able to address their problems in good manner,” Adia said.

Shidah Ronah, family tracing and reunification for Mobile Theatre team said they were dealing in child protection and missing children, orphan and streets children.

“We see these schools are suffering in terms of learning items like chalks, balls, exercise books. We came in to support them, I need children to go to school because we are in peace, there is no need to see them in streets,” Shidah said.

Cornelius Salah Silvino, Director for Development Partners in the Ministry of Education of Central Equatoria State said that they have registered about 59 development partners.

“We have registered about 59 development partners in the ministry and we appeal to the students to study hard because education is the future of life,” Salah said.

Dhol Chung Gatjung Head master of Future Nursery and Primary school praised the organization saying since the establishment of the school they have never received any donation.

“We are requesting them to bring more because we don’t have enough benches, water to be used in the toilets and we have vulnerable children that are not able to pay school fees,” Chung said.

He stressed that the items they received include the 21 boxes of Christian New Testament Bible, net balls, five footballs, one volley and other school kits.

Rebecca Nyakhan Peter Mabior, a primary eight pupil said the teaching was going well and that they only lacked desk in the schools.

“We thank the organization for bringing these learning materials and they will help us a lot. I appeal to them to bring more because education is good. We don’t have desk in our school,” Nyakhan said.

She said she wants to become a doctor in future and urged the colleagues who dropped out of school to come back.

The distribution was done in collaboration with Mobile Theatre Team supported by UNICEF.
