Help us spread the word about South Sudan
The 20 year old internal conflict in South Sudan has taken a heavy toll on the lives of the people. Thousands of lives have been lost, people and families have been displaced and communities have been destroyed. Many families live outside South Sudan in refugee camps in Kenya, Uganda, Egypt and in Northern Sudan or have moved to Europe, Australia and North America. For families that remained in South Sudan there is an entire generation of uneducated or undereducated people.
- • Share what you learn about South Sudan and the need for education with family and friends
- • Host an informational evening with friends in your home
- • Invite Christians Together -South Sudan to speak in your school, church, charitable or civic organization

Volunteering with Christians Together in Wau- South Sudan through Hope Development Volunteers, is a life-changing experience. You share your enthusiasm, time, skills, and energy, and the impact of your service can last a lifetime—for you and the people you serve.
If you can see yourself volunteering in a place where life is slow-paced and simple—but the needs are massive—you can be of immeasurable service to our, friendly community. Volunteers help Education project, Micro-Credit project and Health Care Projects and we can as well arrange tailor-made volunteer placements- whereby you let us know about your skills, interests and when you would like to come and we shall accept you into our program.
We look for volunteers who are:
- Between the ages of 18 and above

- Enthusiastic about working as part of a team to meet the community’s most basic needs
- Able to offer 2weeks to more months of service

Volunteers should prepare themselves to be flexible. For example, if you are assigned to do medical work you may learn that the organization actually needs help with fundraising. Things can move slowly and be unpredictable in South Sudan. Be patient, be patient, be patient. Assess your skills and be honest with potential host organizations if you do not have much experience.
