Authorities in South Sudan’s Western Equatoria State have lauded the Jesuits Refugee Service (JRS), an international refugee entity of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), for its “really great” initiatives in the field of formal education.
Speaking on Wednesday, September 28, during the official handover of semi-permanent classrooms to the government, the Commissioner of South Sudan’s Ezo County, Abel Sudan, acknowledged with appreciation the initiative by JRS in improving the education of children in the State.
“I want to congratulate JRS for their great support towards the people of Ezo County and Western Equatoria State. What they are doing is really great,” Mr. Sudan said, adding that the Jesuit entity has contributed to improved education services to our people, especially the children in Ezo County.”
He added, “Education is something that we need to invest in because it will provide the people of the County with great knowledge and skills to change the people's lives.”
“What JRS is doing to the community of Ezo shall not be forgotten in the County,” Mr. Sudan further said, and added, “I am encouraging the other partners to learn from JRS how they are working to help the community in need.”
