Help us send these kids to school.

Give a little or a lot.

As of 2019, Helping Hands for South Sudan has enabled 80 children to go to school! Pictured below are almost 100 children who would love to follow in their footsteps. Donations of any amount are welcome, but a gift of $500 will fund a child's education for an entire year!  This covers their tuition, room and board, books, school supplies and uniform—all education expenses. (If you'd like to sponsor a specific child, please include that child's name with your payment.) Our hope is that, with enough donations, all of these children can go to school.

Who are the children?

When there are thousands of refugee children without education, it's not easy picking and choosing whom to sponsor. We require each child to be recommended by an adult who knows something of his or her character and kindness. Then it comes down to the luck of the draw. Paper slips are put into a box and one at a time hopeful children come forward to select one.he number of children varies based on our funding. If the paper has a number on it besides zero, they are put on our list (shown below) to await donations. While it's a disappointment for some it's a celebration for the lucky few.
