Annual School Fundraiser: 2017

After-School TutoringWe are now collecting school fees for 2017. For $200 USD (or 14,000 SSP), you can sponsor a Juba Orphanage student for a full year of schooling. In 2016, we were able to pay for learning materials, school books, uniforms and shoes. But, due to the rising exchange rate, we unfortunately did not have enough funds to support after-school tutoring this year.

Your continued support will help us ensure that not only do all the children attend school with their peers, but also excel with the help of after-school tutoring. Thank you!


Please note that the exchange rate has risen drastically in recent months, and while the official rate is USD $1 = SSP 57.5 (USD $100 = SSP 5,750), the market rate in Juba is much higher (USD $1 = SSP 70, or USD $100 = 7,000).


Justin’s Memorial

565caf444c812_7233308a8f0ef9daa6dd5acb5954c52aThe Friends of Juba Orphanage, staff and children at the orphanage, are sad to share that Justin passed away on 13 August 2016, while in the arms of his caretaker, Rhoda. Justin faced a difficult life and many struggles with epilepsy and other disabilities. We are immensely grateful to Rhoda for all of her love and support to Justin in his last year of life – and to all of his supporters during our #GivingTuesday Care for Justin fundraising drive in December 2015. Together with the children and staff at the Juba Orphanage we honoured Justin’s life and spirit with a memorial lunch on 20 August 2016, supported by Logali House.
