ABOUT THIS ISSUE

In this issue, we’ve put together lots of interesting but also inspiring stories on entrepreneurship, inauguration of a modern landing site in Terekeka, importance of upgrading the fisheries sector, families in a changing world, women and problems facing higher education in South Sudan.

In a much special way, we would like to salute our representative to the Women In Africa (WIA) Philanthropy Summit held in the Moroccan city of Marrakech, Elizabeth Lawrence (cover story). As our distinguished entrepreneur of the month, we hope she would act as a true voice of South Sudanese women, mobilizing them and directing their energies towards beneficial entrepreneurial activities across the country. We would like to very much agree with her when she says, ‘If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together’ to underscore the importance of working as a team.

About February 2019 Issue

In this issue, we would like to especially invite you to read the profile of Martin Malish Joseph. Born in the late 70’s and into hardships, Malish worked determinedly hard to assume his current social standing. Who would have believed that a man unable to easily pay his tuition fees and feeding once a day would now be the proud Managing Director of Five Investment Limited? Yes, his company supplies assorted foodstuffs to many nongovernmental organizations and members of the general public in South Sudan, something that has now turned him into a multimillionaire entrepreneur!
