The Event

School in South Sudan

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.

The Orphan College Fund

The Literacy Project is run by an organization called Encouragers Unlimited. One of Encouragers main endeavors is an Orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya called Kings Kids Village (KKV). KKV is a privately run orphange, completely funded through donation and support, that has rescued 40 Aids-related orphans, giving them a new family and a hope for the future. Part of the mission of KKV is to provide education from cradle through college. You can be a part of securing each childŐs opportunity to succeed by donating to The Literacy Project.

Since our event last year, one of our girls from KKV, Essie Wairimu, has been enrolled in the Kenya Methodist University in pursuit of her Nutrition and Dietetics degree. You made that possible. Thank you!
