What is Seeds of South Sudan?

Based in Arvada, Colorado, USA, Seeds of South Sudan was founded in 2011 and received nonprofit 501(c)(3) status in October of 2013. A faith-based organization founded by Lost Boy, Arok Garang, we are dedicated to educating, empowering, and equipping children who have survived South Sudan’s genocide. Our operation depends on a network of committed volunteers, supported by individual donors and civic, educational, and faith-based groups.

Our vision is to raise up the future leaders of South Sudan by providing them with quality education and leadership development. We are committed to educating 100 or more child survivors so that they may return to South Sudan and build a sustainable future for their communities.


We believe in what Diogenes Laertius once said, “The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
