A generation of children has grown up witnessing genocide. Fathers were murdered. Sisters were taken into slavery. Villages were burned. As survivors fled, thousands of boys began their trek across Sudan toward Ethiopia and Kenya, often seeking refuge from militiamen, lions and fatigue in the branches of the acacia tree. It was in these trees the Lost Boys shared their dreams of a better tomorrow.
Now, after more than two decades of war in Southern Sudan, peace has restored hope to the Lost Boys and their families. South Sudan gained its independence July 9, 2011 and now the Lost Boys are eager to rebuild their nation and bring peace through education.
