South Sudan: Educate a Community

It takes a village to raise a child, and so it takes many people to raise an entire community. Support our school in South Sudan so we can educate 350 students in the village of Kolmarek, South Sudan and in turn empower an entire community. $30/month pays for 3 children to attend school where they will receive opportunities to escape poverty through education. In turn, educating children will educate the community. These children take what they have learned back home and teach their families. Receiving an education also increases their future earning potential by 10-20% thus helping their future and their future family. Worldwide it is proven that education helps break the cycle of poverty within generations as children learn about hygiene and how to better take care of themselves, girls learn about motherhood and other life skills are learned.

Your sponsorship connects you with all of the children in our school and not just one. We want all of the children to know they are special and not single out specific students.
