Seeds of Wisdom
Seeds of Wisdom in South Sudan extends its heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in our SUMMER FUNdraiser. This was our first virtual event, and while the new format presented some challenges, it also allowed us to expand our outreach. Nearly 200 donors have contributed so far, and we are very close to achieving our $60,000 goal.
Anyone interested in helping us reach that goal can donate at our website (sowsouthsudan.org) or by sending a check to Seeds of Wisdom in South Sudan, 11 4th Ave. SW, Rochester, MN 55902.
The SOW Board also wishes to thank all those who helped make this event possible, especially Father Mahon and Margaret Kelsey of the Co-Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist and Bryan Rodriguez, who provided technical expertise. We also appreciate that our administrator in Africa, George Okidi Okot, was willing to stay up very late in Uganda to talk to us live.
Anyone wishing to watch the event again (or for the first time) can find it on our Facebook page Seeds of Wisdom in South Sudan. Or, click here to view the video.
In 2016, our Pastor, Father John Lasuba, realized a longtime dream when Seeds of Wisdom in South Sudan opened a school in his hometown of Pukuka, South Sudan. When turmoil erupted, it forced the closure of the school, and many families took refuge in nearby Uganda. Thanks to generous benefactors, Seeds of Wisdom’s work educating the children goes on, with more than 200 students enrolled in Catholic boarding schools or learning at sites in the refugee camps that are staffed by our teachers.
