HISTORY OF THE LOST BOYS OF THE SOUTH SUDAN:

The primary challenge faced by the rural Aliab community in the South Sudan is the
lack of a safe, fully equipped and staffed permanent school building, which we are
currently planning. The one currently in use is outdoors, with the children sitting on the
wet, muddy ground with limited volunteer staff. During the Village’s rainy season the
children have no dry place to attend classes. Our other challenges are obtaining
school supplies and locating trained school teachers. Most of the current financial aid
and social services provided to the South Sudan is available only in the Eastern and
Southern parts of the country. Services are not available for the poor, rural people of the
South and Central Sudan, along the river where the extremely poor Aliab community
lives.
