South Sudan has recently experienced nearly 40 years of conflict, with 2 million people killed and 4 million displaced, so everything in South Sudan needs to be built or rebuilt.
As the latest country in the world, its educational indicators are also the lowest in the world.
Countries like South Sudan that strive to provide quality education are exactly why we create solar energy --
This site Lifeplayer MP3 in the first place.
Our lifeguards have arrived in this country and I have arrived in this country to train in their use and care.
Five years ago, when I was here for the last time, in a country as big as Texas, there were only 50 miles of tarade Road.
Today, the main roads in the capital Juba have been laid;
Although there are no traffic lights yet. The one-

Hotel and Office.
It was unusual to watch TV in 2008, and now every restaurant I 've been to has a flat-screen TV.
Not only will you find a large number of Kenyans in Juba, but you will also find a large number of Ugandans, eshobans, South Africans, Chinese and others looking for economic opportunities.
They bring much needed skills and expertise.
Juba is becoming a new city of El Dorado in Africa.
However, it may flourish
A part of the population is neither read nor written.
According to the Overseas Development Research Institute (ODI)
Less than 2% of the population has completed primary education, not even secondary education.
In proportion, there are fewer girls in South Sudan than in any other country, with only one girl among the four school children.
While education is a top priority the government is working to build an education system in which most of the 8 million citizens live in rural areas and many are still displaced by continuing conflicts with neighboring Sudan in the north.
In addition, the educational needs of millions of out-of-school adults need to be addressed.
Even around Juba, the number of children who do not attend school is evident.
Primary education is not free.
Fees vary between urban and rural schools, but when paying for uniforms, books and shoes, many families are not able to receive basic education.
The shortage of teachers is serious, and less than one of the 15 teachers is female.
Even half of the teachers themselves did not complete primary education, resulting in low quality teaching.
A former teacher told me that international NGOs recruit teachers at a higher salary, and the attrition is very high.
Low salary for teachers-
Between $50 on average100 per month.
After the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in 2005, primary school enrolment has soared.
The class size is the largest in Africa, with more than 100 students per class;
Children often sit together.
In addition, there is a serious shortage of classrooms, books and school supplies.
Everything is needed.
One of the programs to help solve the problem of teacher professional development is the teacher education program in South Sudan (SSTEP)-a three-
Annual National initiative funded by the United States Agency for International Development and implemented by the Center for Educational Development (EDC)
Strengthen primary education.
The initiative will assist the Ministry of General Education of South Sudan in managing the entire education system, developing and developing policies, refining and mobilizing training courses, improving teacher performance and promoting gender equity.
In order to help solve these huge educational needs, we have a considerable number of live players in mp3.
Audio primary school curriculum loading, known as learning village, is being integrated into the SSTEP initiative.
Learning villages covering grades 1 to 4 have been broadcast on 19 local radio stations;
However, this situation has ended due to cost reasons.
By taking advantage of our life participants, not only can the program continue, but it can be made up if a child misses a class.
MP3 function can play programs on demand.
This is particularly important in areas of conflict or where floods are prone during the rainy season.
It is envisaged that thousands of learners will benefit from this initiative.
When I was last in Juba in 2008, it was to help create a picture and visual training program to support the self of 250,000 people
As an extensive part, we have sent radio power to Southern Sudan at that time
A civic education radio program called "Let's Talk.
The programme helps people understand their roles and responsibility before the January 2011 referendum vote.
This time, I am here to train trainers on how to use and care for life players MP3, who in turn will train rural teachers.
Since more than 15,000 of our radios have been used in broadcast learning villages, teachers have been trained in interactive radio teaching (IRI)
The methodology included in the learning village.
That is to say, Lifeplayer MP3 is more complex, more advanced technology, and provides a wider range of functions.
MP3 also uses more energy than radio and needs to be operated using solar panels which are more efficient than human or wind power generationup energy.
The living player uses a set of charging devices in solar panels and the equipment itself to increase the energy capacity.
We are confident that Lifeplayer MP3 will help strengthen the SSTEP initiative and help educate and motivate learners and teachers in South Sudan.
After all, it is such a solution that seeks to address the huge educational flaws that exist in Africa, and we initially developed Lifeline radio, and later developed its technical successor, the main radio and life player mp3.
We are very pleased to contribute to this excellent initiative and to the work of the EDC team, which has already met basic educational challenges in South Sudan.
