United Panyang Primary School opened on May 19, 2011, with students singing and dancing in celebration!
After more than a decade of Civil War in the Sudan, present day peace and the birth of South Sudan as the world's newest nation on July 9, 2011, give us the opportunity to help South Sudanese people rebuild their lives. Moses Deng Joknhial II, one of the "Lost Boys of Sudan" and now a U.S. citizen, believes from his own experience that education is key for this to happen. He founded Rebuilding South Sudan through Education to bring educational opportunities for a better life to the people in his native community of Panyang, South Sudan.
Panyang is the home community of project founder Moses Joknhial II. Moses, one of the “Lost Boys of Sudan”, knows educational opportunities in the USA have rebuilt his life after living as a refugee for 14 years. “My dream is improving the lives of my people through education,” states Moses in addressing the responsibility he feels in paying forward what he has received through education and support in America.
Be the change in this child's life!
