The Valentino Achak Deng Foundation was established in 2006 by Valentino Achak Deng and Dave Eggers, after the publication of Eggers's best-selling novel What Is the What, which tells Deng's life story. The Foundation's mission is to help rebuild Sudanese communities in war-torn Southern Sudan by increasing access to educational opportunities and creating viable and community-driven educational centers. In May 2009, the Foundation opened its first secondary school in the village of Marial Bai, Southern Sudan, the campus has been expanded to include a library, teacher-training college, and community center.

We're a very small and friendly non-profit organization. We are looking for enthusiastic supporters who are willing to host fundraising events in thier homes, schools and communities.
