Hope and Unity for South Sudan

Good Shepherd Educational Foundation

About South Sudan and GSEF

Since its independence in 2011, South Sudan has been one of the most fragile countries in the world. It struggles with a number of serious interrelated problems, including: civil war and ethnic tensions; food insecurity, severe poverty, and rampant disease; and a lack of infrastructure. Over 2 million South Sudanese have fled the country as refugees. Another 2 million are internally displaced.
The Good Shepherd Educational Foundation (GSEF) is uniquely positioned to address many of these concerns by providing Christian education — fostering hope, unity, and peace.

South Sudan is the youngest country in the world, having gained independence in 2011.
