Dreams can come true! Sebastian Maroundit and Mathon Noi’s dream of building a school complex for the children in their home village, Mayen Abun, has been realized-- thanks to the generous donors and supporters of Building Minds in South Sudan (BMISS). 

Sebastian and Mathon value an education because their own began in a refugee camp in Kenya and finished in the United States.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Almost 900 boys and girls attend the Ajong Primary School complex completed in 2015.  When construction began in 2012, 340 boys were attending.  The school now has the largest enrollment of any primary school in all of South Sudan.

Another dream is almost fulfilled, an all girls school, Majok-Keen.  Six of the eight classrooms have been completed since the ground breaking in 2016 thanks to a major grant from the Birthday Offering of Presbyterian Women and other donors.  The school will be completed in 2018.
