Our Mission is to nurture and educate refugee children to become seeds of change for South Sudan.

Help Transform the Lives of South Sudanese Orphans

Founded By ‘Lost Boy of Sudan’, Now Educating 100+ Orphans

With the support of American donors, Seeds rescues South Sudanese refugee orphans from the crowded Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. They join the Seeds family and are educated in boarding schools in Kenya. The students are selected based on recommendations and an interview in Kakuma.

Joining the Seeds of South Sudan family is life-changing. Our students receive three meals a day, medical care and an excellent education in Kenyan boarding schools.

Seeds Student Fondly Remembers His Dad Before Father’s Day
SoSS Student Anyar Makuol

I vividly recall my father as a good man who always supported our family even when he had no money. He always encouraged us by saying “obstacles are the cost of greatness.”  My father saw and set goals, dreams, and aspirations for himself as well as for his family. 

My role model now is Raila Amolo Odinga. He is a Kenyan politician who always fights injustice and tribal rivalries.                           Anyar Makual Dau

Honor a Father and Help Our High School Grads Continue Their Education

Over 10 years, Seeds has been able to educate more than 100 South Sudanese refugee orphans in Kenya.

In recent years, some 30 students have graduated from high school in Kenya. About 12 have been supported by sponsors to attend university in Kenya. Three outstanding students have won scholarships to study in Canada.

Seeds leaders feel strongly that our students need more education or training in a trade to truly contribute to rebuilding South Sudan.

Lost Boy Finds His Mission

When the kids see Arok Garang at school, they see a friendly face and a hard-working custodian – instead of the lost boy who traversed hundreds of miles across a continent, avoiding war, famine and death.
