Our Mission

Seeds of South Sudan rescues refugee orphans from the Kakuma Refugee Camp so they can receive an education in Kenyan boarding schools. These bright children are selected for their leadership potential and willingness to help others, so they can become the “seeds” to build the new nation of South Sudan.

Seeds of South Sudan works to ensure that bright African young people are reaching their full potential.  Each SoSS scholar is given resources to obtain an education to prepare them to create a strong, peaceful and civil society in South Sudan.


Seeds for South Sudan, follows this basic principle: The ethical and moral way to create lasting change is to respect and empower people’s capacity to transform their own lives through education—and as a result, offering them opportunities to build a sustainable future.




Aguil Lual Deng

A Seeds of South Sudan Success Story

Aguil Lual Deng was born in 2001 in Paliau, South Sudan. She lost her parents in the genocide that continues to this day in South Sudan. Aguil was taken to the Kakuma Refugee Camp by community members. Arok selected Aguil for the Seeds of South Sudan program where she attended Roots Academy and received the medical attention that she needed.

Aguil thrived at school and in her final year at Root’s Academy, she was elected Head Girl by the nearly 1000 students. All students in eighth grade are given an exam and the government of Kenya decides whether they will attend a national, regional or provincial high school.

Aguil was selected for the Njonjo Girls High School, one of the top-rated national high schools in Kenya. She entered her sophomore year in January 2018. Aguil is tenacious in her goal of becoming a medical doctor to help the people of South Sudan and works very hard in school. Middle school students at Colorado Academy began supporting Aguil in 2009. They receive letters and updates from Aguil each year. Students raise funds during the school year to continue the support of this incredible young woman.


Join us in transforming the lives of South Sudanese refugee orphans who are eager to attend school!
