Educating children in South Sudan

My friend Nyuol Tong is the founder of Sudanese Education for Liberty Foundation (http://www.selfsudan.org/). This summer, he is building his first school in Ayeit, his village in soon-to-be-independent South Sudan. The Malualdit Ayeit Liberty Academy will educate Sudanese boys and girls, helping this impoverished region recover from years of civil war.

Nyuol has partnered with filmmaker Andrew Schoneberger to document the process of building the school. They have started fund raising through KickStarter.com (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1307080824/it-takes-a-village-building-a-school-in-south-suda).

Please donate what you can to either of these worthy causes.
