PROJECT EDUCATION SUDAN
June 1, 2010
There is something amazing about the small role one can play, watching a nation being built one village at a time. Project Education Sudan (PES) was founded on the simple principles of community, self-sufficiency and hope for the people of southern Sudan through the support of indigenous organizations that make primary, secondary and adult education available for all. These principles I have always believed in, but what I experience in Sudan with PES was the product of these lived principles within three amazing communities in Jonglei. Talking with the teachers, community elders, and students within each of these villages brought home how important sustainable community partnerships are in birthing nations after long civil wars.I have spent time in Africa over the last 20 years working in leadership development and the amount relationship development and project completion that PES has been able to accomplish in the last 5 years is simple astounding.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
impact through personal experience in the fields of Southern Sudan. The amount of work they have accomplished in such a short time and with the communities strength, support and commitment is unprecedented in the non-profit field.
