The Republic of South Sudan gained its independence from Sudan in July of 2011. Due to its
historical oppression, the new nation has a staggering illiteracy rate of 70% for males, and even higher for females. The Literacy Project's mission is to change this percentage by starting a school in the Abiru region. A large plot of land has been appropriated to Encouragers Unlimited. The
Sudanese people are excited to see a school established in the region.
Donations from last year's event have funded the education of a Sudanese law student, Peter Malou, who has hopes to return to Sudan as a Legislator. There is an enormous need for educated legislators in South Sudan to address this literacy deficit. Your donations create a brighter future for the nation of South Sudan.
