and Future Leaders
The mission of Undying Hope is educational to impact the people of South Sudan, and beyond, in four spheres of activity: basic education, public health, and healthcare services, leadership development, and spiritual formation.
Due to decades of civil war, the people of South Sudan are grappling with economic hardship, the absence of good schools, poor health care facilities, and a lack of paved roads. Often, classrooms are entirely outdoors. Students use rocks and planks for seating and have only one or two textbooks for all subjects.
Intentional, quality education is the solution to the problems facing war-torn South Sudan. Through education, entrepreneurship, and leadership training, Undying Hope is raising a generation of leaders that can transform the future of South Sudan.
