Indian peacekeepers raise awareness among schoolchildren on the role of women and girls in science
UPPER NILE – 11 February is annually commemorated as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

PARTNER IN PEACE

“Peace doesn’t just happen. It cannot be wished or willed into existence. It has to be made, it has to be fought for, it needs its own warriors,” stated Nicholas Haysom, the UN’s top envoy in South Sudan at the launch of a new initiative to push the stagnating peace process forward.

The UNMISS Peace Fellows Program is a joint undertaking between the United Nations Mission in South Sudan and the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. This forward-looking project has one main aim: Galvanizing citizens, especially young people across the nation, to breathe fresh life into the quest for a durable peace through active participation and leadership.
