International Day of the African Child
South Sudan will be marking International Day of the African Child on 16 June. The term "child" refers to anyone under the age of 18 or about 51% of the country's 11.8 million population estimate for 2013, of which only 1.6% are enrolled in secondary education. UNMISS and its partners are committed to raising awareness about the plight of children, issuing a constant reminder that quality of education for African children is the only way out of poverty.
