Over 70 girls and boys at Juba Orphanage have long been sharing cramped living conditions within the one main building of the orphanage. Thanks to a private donation of bunk beds in 2011, the rooms can hold more children and they can sleep more comfortably. But, the girls and boys are still living in close quarters of all mixed ages.
The girls need their own dormitory for security and privacy reasons. It is the hope of the Friends of Juba Orphanage and the Rotary Club of South Sudan to build a girls dormitory on the property. There is plenty of land for a new dormitory of modest size, and this would improve the lifestyle of both the boys and girls tremendously. We are currently looking for private donors to support in the construction of this large endeavor. Blueprints of the dormitory, including a latrine and shower block just for girls, have been completed and can be viewed here.
