Dear Friends and Family,
A simple google search on South Sudan shows over two million precious lives lost during decades of Sudan civil war and a staggering number of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and refugees scattered worldwide, including in neighboring countries.
Worse yet, health facilities and schools were destroyed during the war, and teachers fled the region—leaving no infrastructure to support education. 73% of the South Sudan population is illiterate, 70% of children aged 14 and above are out of school, and 75% of primary-aged girls are not in school. And many more are still facing extreme poverty and starvation.
Behind every number above, there is a real person’s face in desperate need of assistance. Undying Hope International (UHI) provides a long-term sustainable solution to such problems facing South Sudan.
If you are looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of those in need, a year-end donation to Undying Hope will have a lasting impact on the lives of the children we serve. Would you consider us for your year-end giving?
Undying Hope International is building a four-year boarding school for girls and boys in Wau, South Sudan. The school will weave a traditional secondary education with leadership and entrepreneurship training. This will be an opportunity to build relationships across communities, undermining the tribalism that destroys peace in South Sudan and cultivating leaders that have a vision of a brighter future. Through education, entrepreneurship, and leadership training, Undying Hope is raising a generation of leaders for South Sudan and beyond.

Until next time, take care of yourself and each other!
With much love and gratitude,
