MISSION STATEMENT

Hope for Humanity, Inc.
is committed to the development of future leaders of South Sudan through providing educational opportunities. Through our efforts to educate the youth,
we empower them to become productive,
self sufficient members
of society who can in
turn pass along what
has been given to them.

Welcome to Hope for Humanity


 

The Rev. Paul Johnson, rector at Christ Church, Glen Allen, Virginia,
has something to tell you about Hope and Resurrection Secondary School
in Atiaba, South Sudan.

In 2004, Richmond, VA based Hope for Humanity, Inc. was formed with the vision to provide educational opportunities to the youth of South Sudan. As a result of two civil wars spanning nearly 50 years, any infrastructure, including the education system, was destroyed. Now only 20% of South Sudanese can read: the second highest illiteracy rate in the world. Today, the youth are looking to education as the tool to move themselves from poverty to self sufficiency.

In 2007, Hope for Humanity completed the construction of a secondary school in the village of Atiaba, South Sudan: only the 22nd high school to serve the over 1.5 million children. A mere 7% of South Sudanese teachers have had any formal teacher training. In response to the request from church and community leaders, we employ trained, university educated teachers from Uganda so our students may benefit from a quality education.
