Transforming the Lives of Orphans of South Sudan’s Genocide
Our mission is to Educate, Empower and Equip Children Surviving South Sudan’s Genocide.
Though the social and political situation in South Sudan is anything but, Seeds of South Sudan’s mission is simple: To fund the education of as many orphaned refugee South Sudanese children living in Kenya at the Kakuma Refugee Camp as possible.
Once selected for the SOSS program, the children are relocated to either Roots Academy, a K-8 boarding school, or area high schools in Nakuru, Kenya in order to transform their lives and, by extension, their country.
Inspired and led by our founder, former “Lost Boy” Arok Garang, Seeds of South Sudan currently enrolls about sixty-five children in educational programs as of September, 2016. We are proud to say that Deng Dau Deng, our first student to graduate from Kisanana High School, has qualified and applied for a collegiate scholarship with World University Service of Canada.
These orphaned refugee children are often under-served by the larger international humanitarian and government-sponsored relief organizations and have little to no hope for an education. Please join Seeds of South Sudan in offering these bright young people the opportunity for a brighter future.
