South Sudan gained independence in July 2011 after 50 years of war, dividing Sudan into North and South. Prior to the separation, the South was marginalized and virtually all it's resources and infrastructure benefiting the North. As refugees repatriate and begin to rebuild their country, many children are without homes, basic necessities, or education.
Keeping Hope Alive South Sudan was formed in May 2011 to help meet these needs. Working with local government officials, NGOs, and churches in the region, Directors Brad and Kim Campbell look to help unlock the youngest generation of South Sudanese from the instability of war and poverty and to release them into their God-given destiny.
Our efforts include:
* A new orphanage in Malakal, South Sudan, complete with food and clean water, clothing, health care, and schooling in conjunction with the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health
* Planting churches with strong biblical foundations to help build strong families and strong future leaders
* Community development programs in English (the government has made English their national language) and programs in gardening, to help locals become self-sustainable
* Nutrient-rich food supply shipments, to help overcome the effects of malnutrition, until residents can support themselves with local food
We believe the children of South Sudan are the future leaders and educators of this new nation. We want to help prepare them.
Roughly 50% of South Sudanese are under age 14 and many are orphaned from war. We are helping repatriate the youth and preparing them to be future leaders.
We believe that the children of South Sudan are the future leaders, educators, and most valuable resource of this new nation. Our desire is to make available to all of our children all of the opportunities that discipleship and good education afford.
