As you know, our school in South Sudan has been temporarily closed due to recent turmoil. The Seeds of Wisdom Board of Directors determined last Fall that we would seek ways to continue to support the children and families of Pukuka, many of whom we have located in Ugandan refugee camps.
For this academic year (which began in February in Uganda), we were able to provide scholarships that allow 43 of our former students to attend two Catholic boarding schools in Arua, Uganda. This not only keeps students on the path of education, but also protects them from the many difficulties of living in a refugee camp. We have located additional students and hope to grow the program next year.
