Help educate vulnerable children in Bor, Jonglei State, South Sudan.

/ 150


Founded by former “Lost Boy of Sudan” Daniel Majok Gai, Sunlight Primary School (SPS) is a community-based private institution providing quality school to children in Bor, Jonglei State. As a child, Daniel and countless other boys trekked thousands of miles to refugee camps to escape civil war. In 2001, he was invited to begin a new life in Denver, CO, where he later became a US citizen. He moved back back to South Sudan in 2011 to work with Project Education South Sudan building schools. In 2012, he opened Sunlight Primary School.

Sunlight Primary School admits boys and girls from kindergarten through primary eight levels, and serves nearly 900 children. One third of students are girls. Since 2015, SPS has been among the top ten scorers and best performing schools in Jonglei State and the nation.

The annual operating budget is $76,000. Families of students contribute $26,000 through school fees for their children. The remaining $50,000 to support term fees for impoverished students, school lunches, uniforms, and teachers' salaries comes from kind friends and donors like you. Please consider making a generous donation to give these children the gift of education and hope for a bright future.

Please make a tax-deductible donation, today, and share the story!

Sunlight Primary School is a partner project of US 501c3 nonprofit Mothering Across Continents℠
