Our Staff in Kenya

In Nakuru, Kenya, Seeds of South Sudan has four in-country directors who run Home Base, cook for the extended Seeds of South Sudan family and visit each of the 75 students and their teachers at school. They also receive modest stipends for their work.

Peter Deng Kuiny


“Kwine” is one of two in-country directors who visits all students at schools, takes them to the doctor when ill and makes payments for school fees for all SoSS scholars in elementary and secondary schools.

Mariel Deng


Mariel takes care of paying bills related to Home Base, shopping for students. He also shares the school visits with Deng. It is important to have two directors as students are spread among 21 secondary schools as well as Roots Academy. The high schools range from 30 kilometers to 450 kilometers from Nakuru, which is headquarters for Seeds of South Sudan in Kenya.
