Want to use your talent to give back?

We're a very small and friendly non-profit organization, with the majority of our staff running programs in East Africa. You would be part of a special volunteer team that keeps our US operations running.

The VAD 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 South 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, South Sudan, and the campus is currently being expanded to include a library, teacher-training college, and community center.
