The 68 Seeds of South Sudan K-12 students safely sheltered in place at Home Base in Nakuru, Kenya from March through December. Older students taught their peers and younger students in math, science, English, history, Christian Religious Education and Kiswahili, the local language in Kenya. Primary and secondary schools reopened to in-person learning in January 2021.
Eighteen Seeds high school graduates traveled to South Sudan in February to volunteer in local schools and see their homeland. Since COVID-19 hit South Sudan, they first stayed in a safe area, helping with raising cattle and other chores. The graduates had to move due to local flooding. Some have tried to find other volunteer teaching jobs. The high school grads will return to Kenya once the border reopens between South Sudan and Kenya.
Three high school graduates traveled to Kakuma Refugee Camp in 2020 to be volunteer teachers to the thousands living there. One medical student volunteered in the pharmacy for several months in 2020. Two of these high school grads are also staying at Kakuma while the roads are closed. Please pray for the safety of all of our students!
Once schools closed, Seeds faced more expenses to feed the students, for utilities and for medical bills for illness and injuries. Please donate to help us meet these unexpected costs. click here to see how you can help.Thank you!/p>
