“Education is our mother and our father”  -Lost Boy Proverb

  • New Scholars
  • NESEI-Girls Rising
  • In 2001, close to four thousand Lost Boys came to the United States seeking peace, freedom, and education. While it has been a struggle, many of the young men and women from the Lost Boys group have been able to pursue their dreams of education, enrolling in community colleges and some of the nation's most prestigous universities. We are happy to report that screenings of the documentary have raised more than a million dollars to support refugee scholarship funds across the country.

    The Sudanese youth are already becoming active community members with much to contribute to both America and Sudan. Many of them have started their own projects to raise funds for schools and hospitals back in Sudan.

    If you would like more information on local scholarship funds or projects to rebuild Sudan, please email us.

We hope that Lost Boys of Sudan will motivate people to extend themselves to newcomers in their community. There are many ways you can give of your time to support refugees:

- Mentor by helping refugees get to know their new community, invite them to attend community or cultural events or offer to take them sightseeing.

- Tutor a refugee in English or help them with other course work, help with school enrollment or financial aid applications.

- Help refugees find employment with growth opportunities.

- Volunteer to give driving lessons, help them to learn the public transit system, or offer transportation to medical or job appointments for refugees without a car.

There are 10 agencies subcontracted by the government’s U.S. Refugee Program. They work on very limited budgets with only a small portion of their funding from the government.
