Transforming the Lives of South Sudanese Orphans
Our mission is to Educate, Empower and Equip Children Surviving South Sudan’s Genocide.
Founded by former ‘Lost Boy of Sudan’ Arok Garang, Seeds of South Sudan is now educating more than 70 children and youth in boarding schools and universities in Kenya. Using funds raised in the United States, Arok interviews students from the Kakuma Refugee Camp who are recommended by South Sudanese community leaders. The three requirements are: 1) the children must be orphans; 2) willing to learn and 3) willing to rebuild their country of South Sudan.
Currently 25 SoSS scholars are attending Roots Academy (K-8) and another 40 are attending high schools in Kenya. Another six are in medical school, seminary and the university in Kenya. The students live at the Home Base in Nakuru during the three months of school vacations. The owner now wants to sell the home and SoSS must raise funds to purchase it.
Arok and two volunteers also interviewed 46 more children in Kakuma in Summer 2017 who are awaiting sponsors. The sponsorship of $1200 a year covers tuition, room and board at Roots Academy or one of the high schools.
