Interactive Radio Instruction on Peace Education for Southern Sudan
EDC (Education Development Center) implemented an Interactive Radio Instruction (IRI) English language programme in literacy and numeracy for South Sudan, with funding from USAID. In 2007, EDC asked for assistance in developing a 5 minute segment for this programme, modelled on the INEE Peace Education Programme. The course includes some factual narratives additional to the original INEE Peace Education Programme, which could be useful for those preparing teaching materials in this area, e.g. biographical material on Jimmy Carter, Henri Dunant, Nkosi Johnson (HIV-AIDS advocate), Wangari Maathai, Nelson Mandela, Jesse Owens, Zinadine Zidane, and others.
