Our world is rapidly becoming smaller and the strength and stability of faraway communities can be as influential in our lives as that of the town next door. By collectively helping more people to obtain the tools and resources to earn a living, escape poverty, and reach their fullest potential as productive members of society, we are strengthening communities worldwide.
Education and literacy are proven powerful tools to end war and poverty and the hopelessness that they bring. We have seen firsthand how access to education can change a person’s life path. Hope for Humanity, Inc. is dedicated to helping the people of South Sudan overcome the destruction wrought by decades of civil war and move on to build their new independent nation by providing youth with education.
In South Sudan entire generations of young people missed out on an education when the longest-running civil war in Africa stopped education and thousands of girls and boys became refugees internally and externally. And some of those young boys were even forced to become child soldiers.
We built a secondary school in a rural Atiaba, South Sudan, an area with less than 8% literacy. This is significant because secondary education is rare in South Sudan, and almost nonexistent in rural areas. But ,now at Hope and Resurrection Secondary School over 300 girls and boys have access to education for the first time in generations. For these students, the education we are providing will change the trajectory of their lives, the community, and our world. The school is much more than a place for learning. It is a symbol of hope because education paves the way to peace and stability.
With Hope and Resurrection Secondary School in place with a professional faculty we offer 350 girls and boys a high school education. We need your support to continue this life transforming work. It cost $900 a year to educate a student. Providing them with education, supplies, lunch and hope cost just $75 per month per student.
