Raising Awareness of the Continued Plight of the People of South Sudan
South Sudan has one of the worst literacy rates, employment rates, and survival rates, especially for females, in the world. Rescue South Sudan Village People (RSSVP) aims to improve these staggering statistics by providing high-quality education based on time-proven teaching methods presented by highly qualified teachers. RSSVP is currently raising funds to build a school building for kindergarten through 2nd grade; our initial plan is to provide educational and developmental programs for children in these grades. For the next phases we plan to continue expanding the Majok-Chedhiop School, as funding is available until it becomes a full K-12th grade program.
We have already placed the well that was needed for village water, and for construction. We have also raised over $14,000. Rotary International has graciously donated $8,000 of that, and right now we have another unique opportunity to finish the first phase.
Rotary Club International has also designated an additional $15,000 in matching funds over the next year! When we raise this, we will have enough to finish the first 4 grades and start seeing students learn in an organized manner.
If you have any thought of helping us – now is the time!
Our Vision & Mission
RSSVP promotes sustainable communities by providing access to safe water, education, and medical care one village at a time. We envision each village of South Sudan equipped with safe water, health care, schools, community infrastructure, and local agriculture in order to be independent, healthy, and productive.
