Our Mission is to nurture and educate refugee children to become leaders of South Sudan.

Transforming the Lives of South Sudanese Orphans

Our mission is to Nurture and Educate Refugee Children To Become Leaders of South Sudan

Founded by former ‘Lost Boy of Sudan’ Arok Garang, Seeds of South Sudan is now educating more than 89 children and youth in boarding schools and universities in Kenya. Using funds raised in the United States, Arok interviews students from the Kakuma Refugee Camp who are recommended by South Sudanese community leaders. The three requirements are:

  1. Children must be orphans;
  2. Willing to learn and
  3. Willing to rebuild their country of South Sudan.

Currently 37 SoSS scholars are attending Roots Academy (K-8) and another 40 are attending high schools in Kenya. Another six are attending university in Kenya. The students live at the Home Base in Nakuru during the three months of school vacations. The owner now wants to sell the home and SoSS must raise funds to purchase it.

Arok and two volunteers also interviewed 46 more children in Kakuma in Summer 2017 who are awaiting sponsors. The sponsorship of $1500 a year covers tuition, room and board at Roots Academy or one of the high schools.

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.
