    The level of literacy of the population of Southern Sudan is one of the lowest in the world. According to some estimates, 90% of the population can neither read nor write. The years of the Civil War left their mark on this country. The government of Southern Sudan has to solve the most complicated problem of education. Our collective from https://homeworkneeded.com wishes good luck!
