DOF Fundraising Campaign for girl’s education

At Deng Opportunities Foundation (DOF) we believe that a girl’s education is very important, but in the country of South Sudan, which has been badly affected by decades of civil war and now being affected by tribal conflict, the number of educated women is very, very low. DOF wants to ensure that a good number of orphan girls get equal access to education. (more…)

Since the initiation of DOF (formerly NSJOF) in 2010, Peter had give talk to good number of classes and his talk has inspired many. Peter is a gifted keynote speaker on the quandary of the orphaned children of Jonglei State of South Sudan and on his personal story as an orphan child at young age in Jonglei State. He went through the difficult life that none of us can’t imagine. Most importantly, people describe Peter as natural speaker. Thanks to Scott Baker for giving Peter this opportunity to speak to his class.

Our lives have changed, really changed a lot and we are so thankful to the founders and donors of DOF for helping us and other vulnerable orphans.”

This Month DOF bring you life story of orphan Chuol Thou Dar

Below is Chuol life story in his own words:

I am by name Chuol Thou Dar, a South Sudanese by nationality. I am 16 years old boy living in Jonglei state South Sudan. It was August 18th, 2011 when tribal clashes occurred in Pieri payam in Jonglei state and my parents were killed in that tragedy. It was a stressful moment for me to see my parents being killed in my eyes witnessed. After I lost my parents I remain traumatized and no one was taking care of me not until the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan went and took me with other orphans children and brought us to the Church compound where we are able to get something to eat and sleep within the compound. It is a great opportunity and I am so delighted to the DOF for offering me this golden chance to take me back to school after stopping my education in Primary six (6) following a painful death of my parents in my eyes witnessed. I didn’t know that my life will be transformed but thank God and DOF for being there for me. I have a dream in future to be an engineer to help my country, community and other orphan children like me. Thank DOF and all the donors for substitute my parents and now I am born again by getting you to be my new parents on this planet.

lineup-blog On 18th August 2011, the tribal clashes occurred in Pieri payam in Jonglei state-South Sudan leaving over 640 people dead and more than 170 orphan children were left with nobody looking after them. The South Sudan Presbyterian evangelical church became a Good Samaritan and offered their compound as orphan children’s trauma and healing center to give them spiritual hope to relieve the children from post trauma stress disorders. The center also gives them food with the help from world food program and other nongovernmental organizations such as DOF.
