Raj, Thanks for the good questions. Average skills of South Sudanese are very low due to the devastation of the civil war: 75% of South Sudanese adults have never attended school. There are, however, many people who received some education while either in (North) Sudan or abroad (many in refugee camps) during the war. There is also a substantial diaspora of South Sudanese in the U.S., U.K., Australia, and elsewhere, and some of those people, many with high skill levels, have returned. The non-South Sudanese at the SSBL facility are from a variety of countries, and I think they are mostly people experience with running similar sophisticated facilities. The manager of the facility is South African. He told us that most of the expats are dedicated to training the South Sudanese staff.
