A Question Everything Production
In the summer of 2012, one year after the declaration of the independence of South Sudan, the South Sudanese community was deported from Israel to their young country. The small community, with just over 700 members, 500 of which are children, has found itself in one of the poorest countries in the world, facing challenges they were not prepared for. Shortly after their arrival, most of the children became ill. Many of them had witnessed and suffered violence, hunger, and other senses of insecurity.
Refusing to accept this destiny, a group of South Sudanese parents and their Israeli friends decided to start this project, aiming to send the children to a boarding school in Uganda. This way, the children could benefit from a safe, educational environment, while we continue to work toward a long-term sustainable educational solution in S. Sudan.
On February 2013, the first group of 35 children boarded the bus in Juba en route to Kampala to start their new school year. Since then, the project grew immensely thanks to hundreds of donors, and it now accommodates approximately 200 children studying at boarding schools in Kampala. Come True is a unique project because it sees the large educational picture, and yet relates to each child as an individual. Since many of the families are still in an unstable situation, finding it hard to provide for their children, the organization offers these children a year-round solution, covering all their needs, both during the school year and on school breaks.
