As many of you know, in 2016 I had the opportunity to work in Yei, South Sudan for a few months. Richard was one of the first guys I met at the EPC compound and he became one of my best friends. He spared no time introducing me to the other guys at EPC, many of which would become lifelong friends. Richard is a passionate man, loving father, and caring husband.
Since the war broke out again in 2015, Richard had to flee from Yei to Uganda. From day one, he has fought to make this situation better. He now has the opportunity to further his education and learn a vital skill that he will bring back to South Sudan. Information Technology has been a passion of Richards for some time. This two-year diploma will give him the resources necessary to be successful.
We are raising the funds so that he can achieve his goals and bring some expertise back to South Sudan. The fees will cover the cost of school, boarding, food, and other expenses that will be needed throughout the two year period. Once the first semester's dues are raised, we will send the money to a young man who has been helping Richard and he will get with Richard and pay the fees. Then at the beginning of each following semester, as long as Richard remains in good standing, we will pull the money out and deliver it the same as before.
Let’s help Richard help South Sudan.
