As the World Literacy Day is being marked today, the workers trade union in the University of Bahr el Ghazal says it has started classes for its illiterate staff.

The International Literacy Day was founded in 1946, to highlight the importance of literacy to individuals, communities and societies.
The Chairperson of the Union, Malual Majok Ring says more than 50 learners have already registered at the main campus in Wau.

Mr Malual made the announcement during the grand marking of the day in an event held within the campus.

Mr Malual said the Trade Union at the University is to improve learning.
“The Trade Union has opened the Literacy class for our illiterate workers, a number of learners …over 50,” he said.

And we are marking this day today in order to encourage our illiterate workers; on the other hand, this day is a remarkable day to send our message to our community that Education is a key for better life.”

The theme for this year is Literacy and Sustainable societies.
