Dear Friends of Deng Opportunities Foundation, Inc.
Be the change you want to see in the world. You can help us help the orphans have access to quality education in their own home country.
DOF is seeking a funding of $119,340 to rescue orphaned children from the streets of Jonglei state of South Sudan and we can’t do it without you. We want to provide these children with shelter, food, clean drinking water, and a quality education. It is through these children that the region can find a more sustainable future. Through education we will introduce people from this region to more sustainable ways of earning living, raising families, building infrastructure and constructing foreign policy. With appropriate funding, we will be able to build our first School in Jonglei State of South Sudan where orphaned children will be able to attend their classes free of charge. We are targeting this audience specifically because they are the most at risk and they have the most to gain from a quality education. We are solving several problems at once. We are getting children off the streets and into boarding schools. We are preventing the military factions from recruiting or, in some cases, kidnapping these children to fight in their rebel armies and tribal wars. We are educating people in more sustainable forms of agriculture. We are providing people exposure to successful political models. We are training people to build stronger communities through cooperation, not oppression. These orphaned children that we are educating are the generations who will bring development to the country of South Sudan.
It is hard to believe what the orphaned children of Jonglei are going through but when you encounter an orphan child and look him or her in the face and see what he or she is going through without education and other basic needs it’s impossible to not know their pain.
An orphan child is unlikely to have a better life without educations. They’re condemned to suffering because they have no parents to pay their school fee and provide for other basic needs. Some live a life of the street and end up not surviving. This is where you come in! you can help these orphans have well build a school in Bortown of Jonglei state where they all can attend their classes free of charge.
“The tragic of orphans is real, I experienced this tragic reality 22 years ago. I was an orphan child went through what these orphans are now going through and it was painful and hopeless life. It broke my heart to see what these kids are going through and I started thinking about ways to help them. So, I started the foundation to provide the scholarship for orphans and that’s how Deng Opportunities Foundation, Inc. was born.” Said founder Peter Deng
As we are in our 11th years at Deng Opportunities Foundation, Inc., it is with gratitude to the Deng Opportunities Foundation for sustaining the worthwhile work that has helped 65 orphans with education and other basic needs so far. Our energy for continuing this work is strong – we are filled with BIG ideas for enhancing our existing scholarship programs. We now planned to build a school instead of continuing with scholarships program. Why? Because with our own school, we can educate more 150 orphaned children each year. This is the best way to help more orphans get the education but without your generous support, we can’t do anything. These children need your help most and they needed right now.
Since Spring of 2011, we have carried out 5 big assessments and reached distant relatives of the orphans and the community to act so that orphans should be taking good care while they waited for the education opportunities from Deng Opportunities Foundation, Inc. We are developing a further collaboration with distant relatives’ families who live with orphaned children.
We’re thinking BIG as we look toward DOF’s future. Your generosity has brought us such a great distance since 2010. Will you continue to help our organization serve those orphans who gain so much from our programs? Will you help us with our campaign financially so that we can reach our goal of $119,340? Can we count on you?We are strong because of your support – we are looking to the future with BIG dreams for our orphans – your help plays a BIG part in our ability to make a difference in their lives. We are counting on you because we know together we can make a big difference in orphans’ lives.
We have volunteer team in South Sudan working with orphans. Now we need your help. Your gift or $25, $50, $100, $200, $400, $500, $1,000, $2,500 or more can help bring us closer to our goal of building the school. Give us the gift of $50,000 and above and we will name the school after you. Thank you in advance for helping us works toward changing the lives of orphaned children in Jonglei state of South Sudan.
