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.

Drag the slider left to see how she looks today as a confident, accomplished teen in high school.

Congratulations to Garang Manyok Giet (left), and Dau Machar Jok, Seeds first University Graduates!

Dau and Garang each received a Bachelor of Arts in Theology from Africa International University in late November. They are now tutoring the younger students at Home Base. They will travel to South Sudan in early 2021 and hope to teach at a local seminary there.

Honor a Mother and Help Our New Grads Volunteer in South Sudan

This year, 12 Seeds scholars are graduating from high school. Seeds founder, Arok Garang, and board members believe it is important for its high school graduates to visit South Sudan, volunteer in the community and to meet extended family. The students love experiencing their culture. They also are moved to see their homeland and conditions on the ground.

Seeds has sufficient funds to send them to South Sudan. Three additional, earlier high school grads have been volunteering in Kakuma Refugee Camp, and wish to visit their homeland with the 2020 graduates. We need to raise about $4,000 for living expenses for three months and travel back to Nakuru, Kenya for the entire group.

We invite you to donate to Seeds in honor, memory or celebration of your mother or another mother you know.

Click the red “Donate” button above and let us know the name and address of the person you are honoring with a donation. Donors will also receive an acknowledgement from Seeds of South Sudan. Thank you for your support!

Over $600K Donated

Seeds has been blessed to have many generous sponsors and donors over the years to educate more than 100 South Sudanese refugee orphans. Many more orphans are waiting at Kakuma Refugee Camp, where food rations have been further reduced. We also have many high school graduates who would like to receive education or training to better serve their country of South Sudan. Click here to see how you can help.Thank you!

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.
