South Sudan Deputy Minister for Education, the Honourable Ms, Rebecca Joshua Okwaci

ARTICLE 2. 8th March 2013

On International Womens’ Day in Juba, South Sudan Nuala was privileged to be asked to join in the celebrations in the company of the Deputy Minister of Education, the Honourable Ms. Rebecca Joshua Okwaci. Nuala described an informal speech by the Government Minister as ‘inspirational’. The small group of women who gathered outside the Department’s buildings included many of the women who are working in education at different levels for the people of South Sudan and Nuala was given the opportunity of saying a few words about the situation of women in Ireland. All in all a very memorable occasion said Nuala.
