In 2015, Seeds of Wisdom opened a school in Pukuka, South Sudan. Near the end of the 2016 academic year, many families were forced to flee the area due to violence. We located many of our former students and their families in refugee camps in northern Uganda and continue our mission to provide education for the children of Pukuka by sponsoring 46 children into two Catholic boarding schools and by providing tutoring for former students who remain in refugee camps. In spite of many challenges, our students are thriving.
Debate teams are very important in both South Sudan and Uganda. At St. John the Evangelist School in Pukuka, the debate teams met every Friday afternoon and it was considered quite an honor to be selected to be on a team.
The debate teams have continued at St. Kizito school as the students from St. John the Evangelist carry on the tradition of lively debates and discussion. According to our headmaster, George, the students are performing at a very high level in the debates and providing excellent challenges to their fellow Ugandan peers.
