Abraham Majak, President
I am Abraham Madit Majak. I am the founder and president of RSSVP, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and the funding necessary to rebuild the infrastructure in South Sudan.
I am also a Co-founder of Lakes State Media. Lakes State Media is a social media platform that we use to bring information, news, and social issues to people of South Sudan to be well inform. When they are well-informed, they can discuss their issues and find amicable solutions.
I survived the years of civil war in Sudan and was brought to the United States in 2001. Since then, I have finished my secondary education; started college; found employment; started RSSVP with my brother, Isaac; am the President of Trinity Sudanese Lutheran Ministry in Lansing, Michigan; and am the Vice-President of Southern Sudan Rescue and Relief Association (SSRRA), a charitable organization that provides assistance to the Sudanese who have been relocated to the U.S.
While life is full and busy, I deeply desire to share good fortune and a better start in life with my family and countrymen back in South Sudan.
My brother and I are two of the lucky ones. We survived. And after many years at Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya, we were chosen to come to the U.S. – I came to Michigan and Isaac was sent to Massachusetts. We have been fed, healed, nurtured, educated, and befriended. Now it is time to give back to those left behind.
