The Power of Education to make a Difference
Almost as important as building schools in and around Southern Sudan is the outreach to schools in the United States to help raise awareness of the educatioal and humanitarian struggle of the Sudanese people. Hope With Sudan offers programs that engages American students and helps them participate in bringing hope and education to these people as well as to offer opportunities for students to become advocates themselves. When American students become acquainted with the story of the Lost Boys of Sudan told by the Lost Boys themselves they grow and learn in ways that help them fully understand the mission and complex challenges of their struggle and the struggles of those still in Sudan. It also helps student foster empathy and understanding as they meet with and hear first hand the stories of loss, survival and courage.
To help educators get started, listed below are teacher resources prepared by Doug Killin, teacher and board member. The lessons can be altered for any grade level from 6-12 and can be used and copied for educational purposes, The Lost Boys living in the San Jose area can come present their stories to your class with Jerry Drino upon request.
