I have been involved with non-profit organizations and fund raising for decades (I have been involved in that time with raising nearly a billion dollars). The two questions I have to answer most often is are the fund raising costs low (will my money go to the non-profit organization to do some good or is it going to overhear) and what does the organization do with the money. From personal experience with PES, the costs of the organization are VERY low. In addition, money raised goes to building schools and the ancillary needs that aid education (grinders so women can grind grain grain as they are expected to do AND go to school). It is a five star organization to me!!!
PES is now working with the government of South Sudan. We are now a registered NGO and work directly with the Ministry of Education both at a state and county level. We also work with GoSS at the county, village levels as well. It has provided us the necessary documents that allows us to fully participate with the country, state and local levels.
As a donor of PES, I know the money I contibuted toward the much needed dormitories makes a direct impact on the lives of the girls at Ayak Anguei. PES brings back field reports from their annual trips and shares the progress and delightful antidotes of some of the over 600 girls who attend the only all girls school in the area. The girl's pride in their school and education is a very precious gift that I can help bring to them through the relationship Project Education Sudan has personally developed in the villages where they help build educational infrastructure. It is important to me that PES supports, encourages and empowers the girls and women of the school villages they work with.
Thank you for your support for the much needed dormitory that is now under construction! We are hoping to raise the funds for the other dorm this coming year so the other girls don't have to sleep on the groud of the classrooms at night, warding off scorpions and snakes!
Project Education Sudan is an organization who values the relationships of all they serve. They work in partnership with and respect the decisions and perspectives of the community leaders they work together with. Their actions speak for them. They truly work toward promoting self sufficiency and sustainabilty and develop capable and strong Sudanese leadership in all they do. Their promotion of women's empowerment and focus on the girl child is a corner stone of their work. I find working with PES is a honor and has been a life changing experince for me. All they do is top drawer and executed with courtesy, respect and integrity.
