The world’s newest nation deserves the best start – tell the World Bank to support universal education for South Sudan
As Gordon Brown launches a new report education in South Sudan, LCID is supporting his call for the World Bank to support the world’s newest nation deliver education for all.
South Sudan, the newest country in the world, is anchored to the bottom of the world league table for education. More than one million children in South Sudan alone are denied their right to a primary education. Gordon Brown’s report calls on the World Bank’s Global Partnership for Education to stop dragging their heels and take urgent action to support the South Sudanese government’s efforts to build a universal education system.

The global campaigning movement Avaaz are supporting this call – please take action now by sending a message to the World Bank President Zoellick and leaders of the Bank’s key donor countries.
