*The program will run for a 5-year period and is expected to have a considerable impact on communities in the State, which is amongst the poorest of the country
Juba, South Sudan — As part of its commitment to the socio-economic development of South Sudan, Oranto Petroleum will be financing an educational programme in conjunction with the Ministry of Petroleum, to provide training to 25 teachers in the most underprivileged parts of the country.
The support from Oranto Petroleum paves the way for 25 teachers to receive quality training that will benefit 60,000 children across 30 villages in Yirol, in South Sudan’s Eastern Lakes State. The program will run for a 5-year period and is expected to have a considerable impact on communities in the State, which is amongst the poorest of the country.
It will be implemented by Action for Intervention and Management (AIM), a non-governmental organization that works to provide quality education to the most under-developed parts of South Sudan.
“At Oranto Petroleum, it is our firm belief that supporting teachers in their professional development leads to improved outcomes for learners. Good quality training is an essential part of a teacher’s professional life and it is going to help so many children,” said Prince Arthur Eze, Executive Chairman of Oranto Petroleum
