The Seeds of Wisdom Board is pleased to announce the hiring of Alfred Lomoro as our school administrator for St. John the Evangelist Catholic School in the boma of Pukuka in Yei, South Sudan.
Alfred has been involved with the SOW project since its inception having served as facilitator/translator/spokesperson for both on-site visits to the Pukuka community by members of the SOW Board and is already serving as our site administrator in charge of overall coordination of the project. Alfred comes highly recommended. He and Father John first met when they attended the Seminary together in Yei.
Alfred Lomoro was born in Yei, South Sudan in March of 1970. He attended both elementary school and junior high school in Yei. From 1989 to 1992, Alfred attended St. Augustine Seminary in Yei. From 1992-1997 Alfred went on to study at St. Paul’s Major Seminary in Khartoum from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sacred Theology. Following his graduation from St. Paul’s Seminary, Alfred worked both as a secondary school teacher in Metu, Uganda and a social worker.
In 2004 Alfred and his family left Africa due to the Civil War. He sought refuge in Canada. While in Canada, Alfred continued to take classes at the university and was able to obtain employment with SCM, a supply organization.
Since 2012, Alfred has been back in Africa serving as Coordinator for the Rural Development Incentive Organization.
The Seeds of Wisdom Board is very pleased to have Alfred working as both our Site and School Administrator and we are grateful to have someone with Alfred’s background and skills in this leadership position. We are confident that Alfred will help us successfully launch St. John the Evangelist Catholic School.
