How much choice for students in South Sudan?

The Student’s Organization for Liberty and Entrepreneurship, (SOLE) conducted a training in Yambio, South Sudan on academic liberty and mentorship in June 2019.

76 students, 28 boys and 48 girls took part in a debate on whether you should be able to choose your own career or someone else should choose it for you in a country where the traditions are not for individual choice particularly where girls and women are concerned.   The idea was to encourage the students to consider how much freedom they should have in these sorts of choices  and understand their rights to participate in a learning environment that emphasises mutual respect, tolerance, and free inquiry. They became interested in learning more about liberty and how it contributes to prosperity.

The students then had a discussion about what their own career choices might be.
