South Sudan

Say hello to one of the newest countries on the planet!  After 2 civil wars spanning several decades, millions of lost lives, and hundreds of thousands of refugees, South Sudan finally won its independence through a referendum vote on July 9, 2011.

Although they face a myriad of challenges to achieving a stable environment with a thriving economy, the people of South Sudan are resourceful, ambitious, and determined.

We’re doing our part to support and empower them on their way to a thriving democracy – through our work building schools with the Kuek Garang Foundation; literacy efforts for women through Lost Boys Rebuilding Southern Sudan; and supporting entrepreneurs through the Trep Life social action campaign.
