2017-07-19 Download Print

Hunan delivered the first batch of 745,000 textbooks to Juba, capital of South Sudan, on July 14, 2017. These textbooks, printed in Hunan, will benefit 100,000 pupils, and contribute to South Sudan's educational system development.


The textbooks are part of a South Sudan educational and technical assistance project, which is China’s first comprehensive educational foreign assistance project, agreed on 23 November 2016. It is directed by the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, and is an undertaking of the China South Publishing & Media Group (CNS), and Teewon Digital Media Technology Co., Ltd.   


It is an ongoing project.


Teewon completed an investigation into South Sudan’s Educational Development and submitted its report to the Ministry of Commerce. Proposed guidelines for South Sudan Educational Informatization, and Educational Modernization, will be finished later this month and in mid-September. Teewon is also establishing an ICT (Information and Communication Technology) Training Center for South Sudan teacher training.


The first batch of 58 South Sudan teachers finished their training in China, and returned to South Sudan to train other teachers. The second batch of 140 teachers will be coming soon.


Mathematics, English, and science textbooks for South Sudan’s primary schools (Grade 1 to Grade 8), compiled by Hunan publishing houses, are scheduled for delivery in early 2018.
