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.

Sponsorship of $150 per month covers tuition, room and board at Roots Academy (K-8) or one of the high schools in Kenya. Any donation helps meet our students’ needs.

Suport Seeds on Colorado Gives Day

Seeds of South Sudan has once again qualified as a participating non-profit for Colorado Gives Day. Donations scheduled for payment on December 7 will be supplemented by dollars from a $1.6 million incentive fund provided by the Community First Foundation. You can schedule your donation beginning November 1.  Consider a recurring donation to help Seeds cover expenses for students who have lost their sponsor or become ill.  CO Gives charges the lowest percentage of any vendor Seeds uses. Thank you!

Sponsors Can Speak Personally With Their Student in December

Seeds is offering sponsors the opportunity to “meet” and speak with their sponsored student virtually over zoom for a 15-minute block either Monday, December 27 or Tuesday, December 28 between 9 am and noon Denver time. The students will be at Home Base for their holiday break then. There is a nine hour time difference, so the calls will end after 9 pm Kenya time.

To indicate your interest, please email Sue@seedsofsouthsudan.org  by December 12 and indicate a time or day preference. We know it will be a meaningful time for you both!

If you sponsor multiple students, we will try to arrange a session jointly.

Stay in touch by subscribing to Seeds monthly electronic newsletter.  If you are not currently receiving our newsletter, email: info@seedsofsouthsudan.org and give us your name and email address.

Thanks For Your incredible Support

Over 10 years, Seeds has been able to educate  120 South Sudanese refugee orphans in Kenya.

In recent years, 46 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.
