Striving for the Education of Children Everywhere

Hope Is Where the Heart Is

Who We Are

Welcome to the South Sudan Center of America!

Biar Atem, one of the "Lost Boys of Sudan," created the South Sudan Center of America as a way to combat indifference, intolerance, and injustice through education, dialogue, and cultural understanding.


Biar Atem was seven years old when soldiers from the North came to kill him and every other boy in South Sudan

Now an adult, Biar seeks to help other children suffering from persecution and poverty. Want to join him, too?


"Having seen so much cruelty and pain in my life, I have concluded that developing a heart of compassion is the meaning of life."
