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.

Join Us October 1 at Bonacquisti Winery in Denver

Please join us Friday, October 1 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Bonacquisti Winery, 4640 N. Pecos Street in Denver.  You’ll enjoy great wine and food, listen to smooth jazz and be inspired by the number of refugee orphans Seeds has been able to educate over the years.  This is your last chance to see and hear from our founder, Arok Garang, before he returns to Kenya. The music is provided by the Eric Welty Quartet featuring Keddjra. You can hear how Seeds students thrived at Home Base during the pandemic. Our high school grads traveled to South Sudan to deliver vital food to people displaced by flooding.

The event will benefit the education of Arok Thuch, one of our top-scoring high school graduates (see his photo below left). Arok is enrolling in the University of Nairobi this fall, where he plans to study engineering or actuarial science.

We will announce other events via our 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.

Many more orphans are waiting at Kakuma Refugee Camp, where food rations have been further reduced.

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.
