Help Us Create A Future for The Children of the Aliab Community


South Sudan Aliab Education and Relief Fund.

We are asking your assistance to help us raise funds to build a small school of Thirteen (13) classrooms which will serve 637 students (141 girls and 498 boys) who have no other access to an education in this small, rural African village of Aliab.  The children there have suffered through years of attending makeshift classes taught by a few volunteers, in the open terrain, under wind driven rain with only a few trees to protect them in their roofless outside classes, especially during the rainy season.
The walls of their makeshift school rooms are made from mud, which runs down and surrounds them as they sit on the ground during the rainy season and hot sun in the dry season.  Learning under these conditions, sitting in the cold mud and hot sun, with no desks, chairs, or books to learn from, is near to imposible

   SSAERF.org is a nonprofit, tax exempt, US based organization that provides basic relief, education, and health services to the orphan children of the Aliab Community in the South Sudan area of Africa. The 13 classrooms we are building will serve 49 poor and orphan students in each class providing reading, math, writing and other basic education activities. We have begun this project working with the current Duong-Gok Primary School in a rural community which is very poor and far from any developed community.  Here is a total grant cost; Walling $ 90,450.29 USD. Roofing $ 39,952.25 USD. Plumbing $ 5,058.03 US
Grant total  in USD $ 135,460.84
19239064_1531258771962265_r.jpegThis is a community of very poor families, the majority of who are the surviving widows and orphans from the recent war and unrest in the African South Sudan. There are no official schools here, no health clinics, supermarkets, car dealers, public transportation or restaurants. Just a small, poor, village community working to survive with the assistance our organization is able to provide. 
The people in the Aliab community have to walk up to 75 miles over several days to the nearest large community, Juba, just to visit a clinic doctor, or take their children to an official school program and finding them a family to stay with. None of the village’s surviving widows have access to the transportation or the financial resources needed to send their children to school in Juba. That is why we are asking for your assistance in creating an opportunity for these poor children to be able to attend a school built to meet their needs in their own home community.

  The primary challenge faced by the rural Aliab community in the South Sudan is a permanent school building, which we are currently planning.
The second challenge is obtaining school supplies, and the third is locating trained teachers for the school. Much of the current financial assistance provided to the people of the South Sudan is only available in the Eastern and Southern parts of the country, far from their village.  
The Aliabs live in a rural community with little or no resources. Resources and financial and program assistance rarely gets to their poor rural community along the river where the Aliab community lives.Our Story:
19239064_1531258907407011_r.jpeg

The founder and Executive Director of SSAERF, Kuol Aleng, lost his entire family to the diseases that ran rampant in the country during the war. Fleeing his boyhood home for Ethiopia to escape the war, he eventually traveled to Kenya. Kuol was fortunate, as one of the Lost Boys of the Sudan, he was moved to America, graduated from high school, became a US citizen and a local businessman. For years, he tried to locate his family in the war-torn area was unable to locate or contact his family and eventually found that they had all succumbed to disease. When he returned to Africa to attend his father's funeral a few years ago, he was overwhelmed with the enormous needs in his home community and began working towards creating a means to help his people improve their lives and their community.Kuol, through his philanthropic work, has developed reliable and trustworthy contacts in the Aliab Community who will assist SSAERF to reach its goals.  One of the community non-voting Advisers to the SSAERF Board of Directors is the Right Reverend David Akau Kuol Mayom, the Anglican Episcopal Bishop of Awerial, who will provide coordination and oversight for SSAERF Inc.’s funding, building, and program development the Aliab Community.
