Sowing Independence

Growing a new nation is hard work. Any American knows that.
As South Sudan recognizes its 6th Independence Day on July 9, despite the struggles, we are plowing ahead to bring hope for a better future.

Farms Continue to Grow
Planting always brings hope. The students are planting drought-resistant cassava on the school grounds. It is growing nicely and should feed many families during this extended food shortage. 

Planting at Nancy's Garden was delayed as the hard soil could not be plowed, but, joyfully, diesel arrived last week and plowing has commenced.
Sixteen women are working the garden sowing short term crops that can withstand bouts of flooding.

Profits from the sale of crops are put into an account to sustain the garden. The proceeds should be able to sustain recurring costs of the project, such as seeds and security.
Watch our new video detailing the school's mission and projects.

Sewing Instruction

As you receive this email, our students should be receiving their new uniforms. Once distributed, the tailors will begin instructing students on how to make their own clothing and other items. 

Uniform fees go into the school account to support future programs.

Printer Earning Income

We installed a printer at the internet cafe, making this rare resource available for a fee to the community. This very successful business plan is temporarily on hold until proper solar panels can be installed to power the internet cafe.


UNMISS Peace Cup

Our girls participated in a UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) sponsored volleyball tournament last week. Although they lost to Bishop Mozilari Secondary School, one of our girls was awarded Best Player and Abukloi School was recognized as the Most Disciplined Team in the tournament.
