Sudan Sunrise at Simpson Middle School

On Friday, September 30, Executive Director Tom Prichard hosted a question and answer session between middle school students of Simpson Middle School in Leesburg, Virginia and Abraham Acien, project director of the Lost Boys Education Operation with Sudan Sunrise.

The students had recently learned about the civil war between the north and south of Sudan – before South Sudan’s independence – and the Lost Boys by reading a short novel A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park.

The students were enthusiastic about speaking with Abraham, how he survived and how he came to America after living for several years in Kakuma refugee camp.
