Sudan like  any other nations of the world, is working to eradicate illiteracy by the year 2020 to achieve goal 4 of the sustainable development by providing quality, flexible and easy education.
 There is  a gap in the educational process, so that  the building of a digital base in cooperation with the telecommunications Authority in order to benefit  of the technology to provide quality, fair and flexible education so that there is no one illiterate in the Sudan.

The political will is to eradicate illiteracy in the country by 2020, in order to give effect to the initiative of the President of the Republic’ the importance of utilizing modern technologies, and the country's communications sector in literacy at the national level.
Coordination between the Ministries of education and communication, organizations and the private sector must be increased in order to establish a digital database of illiteracy and the efforts to remove it.

We need for more efforts and coordination and cooperation between the two ministries, relevant organizations and the private sector to establish a digital database of   illiteracy and the efforts to eliminate it.
 Efforts have been carried out over more than twenty-one thousand recruits through more than 216 literacy programme centres, over 600,000 citizens.

More than one million citizens over the past year have to complete the illiteracy level in Khartoum state, which had reached 16 percent under country-level project to implement a nationwide literacy programme in the year 2020 to give effect to the initiative of the President of the Republic. . More than 89,000 graduates are involved in civic activities, more than 35,000 of them working in the field of literacy.
 We need to make the most of the advantages of technology in education programmes, especially literacy and adult education, in order to keep pace with the times and the spirit of development
Everyone should do more efforts to change individual and institutional behaviour and to disseminate culture of information in order to provide all services provided electronically by the State.

 That comes through coordination between the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Communications and Information technology in enforcing many joint projects in the context of the conviction of the importance of human development, of which illiteracy is one of its challenges; besides the important role of media professionals in the Literacy and Adult education programme.
