Skilled and well qualified: strengthening our partners in South Sudan

Number: 179.1025

South Sudan has been dominated by conflicts and unrest for years. The level of education is low, and there is also a shortage of skilled specialists. The Presbyterian Church of South Sudan (PCOSS), Mission 21's partner church, is attempting to expand its capacities during these tempestuous times so that – with future requirements in mind – it can meet the demand for experts. Extensive personnel development (including scholarships and advanced training) is strengthening the church and empowering it to play a key part in the peace process.
