Summary

The food crisis in South Sudan has resulted in millions experiencing acute malnutrition. By teaching farm management, students at Abukloi School in Rumbek, Lakes State are learning the skills to plan for, grow, harvest, manage and market crops to feed hundreds of people and earn income to support their school. Our rapidly growing secondary school of 250 students has land to expand the farm program to further develop this self-sustaining program and end the cycle of malnutrition.

Challenge

The civil war in South Sudan has decimated farm land, destroyed the economy, and created internal population displacement that has resulted in millions experiencing acute malnutrition. Focusing on the oil economy, the government has neglected regional agricultural development which has contributed to the lack of access to basic food. Most South Sudanese survive on less than one meal a day.

Solution

Abukloi's agriculture program will teach our students how to produce enough crops to feed all of the students and staff at the school and sell the surplus at a market void of fresh produce. In addition, students will learn how to create a business plan, manage finances, inventory capital, and market their produce. This will teach real business skills applicable in a number of other job opportunities.

Long-Term Impact

Income from the sale of our crops will be used to maintain and expand the farm, eventually enabling our school to produce enough food to feed a larger portion of the population.
