Solidarity Teacher Training College celebrated the graduation of 19 students in August. STTC recently received high praise from the director general of the Ministry of Education in South Sudan, who remarked on the integrity of the school’s final exam process and knowledge of the students.

“Teachers are role models and peace builders — they are the ones who understand the learners and are the ones who are at the grassroots, in the communities, and are able to bring change through education.” — STTC student John Dau
