In 2015, our movement began funding four small classrooms in Yida Refugee Camp, South Sudan. Because of your fundraising and giving, the Endure Primary School now has ten classrooms led by twelve Nuba teachers and a support coordinator. Every week they teach 930 students who have fled from the Nuba Mountains, where the government of Sudan has been waging a genocidal war against civilians since 2011.
This special school is not only one of the few that is serving Nuba students, it is also one of the top-performing educational institutions in the area!
You can help the teachers add the final grade to the Endure Primary School this year by starting a fundraising page and asking your friends and family to donate. We're a little shy of $5,000 away from making that happen, so if around 20 of us start fundraising pages right now we can have this need knocked out soon!
Our fundraisers can usually raise $250 in around 15 minutes, so this is a fast and effective way to have a real, lasting impact in Yida.
Have questions before starting your fundraising page? Reach out to me at swilson [at] operationbrokensilence [dot] org .
If you can't start a fundraising page right now, here are three other ways you can help us raise the remaining support needed for adding the final grade to the Endure Primary School.
Join The Renewal
Make your support of the school effortless by giving monthly! The Renewal is our recurring giving program that is bringing consistent funding to the students and teachers.
Signing up is easy and comes with perks! And since you choose how much you give monthly, you can fit your support into your own budget. Whether you give $10 or $100 a month, this is one of the best ways to empower teachers and students.
Make A Donation
We understand that a lot of people like to spread their giving out between a number of causes they care about. If you know that education is at the heart of empowering the Sudanese people like we do, you can make your impact by making a one-time gift!
If you prefer giving by check, make checks payable to Operation Broken Silence and mail to P.O. Box 770900, Memphis, TN, 38177-0900.
Spread The Word
Not in a position to fundraise or give? That's okay! You can still help out by raising awareness online about this specific need.
Copy and share the following social media messages to help spread the word to your friends and family. If you would like to share some photos with your posts, you can download some ones we have designed here.
