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, the need for peace intense.

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

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

• FM programing 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 in the future.

You can be a part of this new beginning as TWR comes alongside the Church in The Republic of Sudan to assist with its healing, revitalization and growth. Discover more about how radio is improving education in South Sudan.
