In the now war torn South Sudan, adults and children often are lacking the education and literacy they need to be successful. For those who have the opportunity to take lessons under the tree, finding reading or writing materials is impossible. With the donation of 22, 000 books from Books for Africa, Nyarweng Foundation of Sudan will educate the illiterate, empower women, and give the lost generation a second chance. We are changing the world and rebuilding war-torn South Sudan through education. To help us ship these books, please follow the donation link and make a secured, online, tax deductible donation to Nyarweng Foundation of Sudan Inc.

Because of the protracted war in Sudan that lasted for many decades, social infrastructures are virtually non-existent. One of the most devastated institutions is education. During the war schools were looted and destroyed. After the peace agreement signed in 2005, life is getting back to normal but there are not enough schools for children. Children across South Sudan gather anywhere to get what they all crave: “education”. They sit on stones under the trees as makeshift classrooms; they face many difficulties including lack of learning materials and teaching aids. Western Equatoria Community Association (WECA) is working towards educational improvement for the children in Western Equatoria State; every donation for educational resources will make a difference in the life of children in South Sudan.

Make no mistake, there are hundreds and thousands of people [in Africa], young and old, who aspire to an education so that they can become their own agents of change and lead themselves out of the trap of poverty that has kept them down for much too long.
