Many minors are alone in a camp of over 80,000 refugees who have little food and are not allowed to work or raise crops. These children are rationed 1 cup of cornmeal which must last them two weeks and are at extreme risk of starvation and can be kidnapped at any time by rebel forces trying to fill their ranks. For a few hundred dollars a year, the boarding school provides for their safety, nutrition, education, and hope for a future. It will also allow the Lost Boys and Girls here to focus on their educations. Please go to the outreach page for more details for sponsoring a child to school.
