South Sudan - A New Beginning

On July 9, 2011, the world’s 193rd nation was born: The Republic of South Sudan. For Sudan, the largest country in Africa, the cost has been high and the need for peace intense.

TWR Africa is conducting extensive research in order to help The Republic of South Sudan begin to grow, physically and spiritually with the following:

• Initial shortwave programming from Swaziland. These programs will focus on leadership and educational development with sound biblical teaching.

• FM programming within The Republic of Sudan, in partnership with the Church as it grows. Practical programs are being planned for agricultural development, wellness and health issues and educational programs for generations who have had little to no formal training.

• New radio programs in the major languages of the fledgling nation: Juba Arabic, African English, Dinke and Nuer. Other languages will be developed later.
