What You Can Do

Please consider becoming a partner in our efforts to build schools in South Sudan

For over two generations, Southern Sudanese have not had the opportunity to receive a proper education. The majority of schools that do exist consist of a chalkboard under a tree, with volunteer teachers who have little or no formal education. Noting that over 80% of the population of South Sudan is illiterate, education is the single most valuable contribution that we together are able to support. Please consider making a difference in the lives of the people of South Sudan.


There are a variety of ways you can mobilize, become a volunteer, host a fundraiser and more! Learn how here.

“For several years, I have been filming a feature documentary on Sudan Sunrise’s Tom Prichard and Manute Bol on their dedication to reconciliation and building schools for all marginalized people. They worked hard together and vowed to do no harm. Tom continues to work with South Sudanese to fulfill Manute’s dream. Nothing in my life has inspired me more. When you consider that less than 20% of South Sudan is literate, you can begin to understand the great impact on communities that Sudan Sunrise is having now and will have in the future.”
