Middle and High Schools

Description

Large group presentation and facilitated discussion with two to three “Lost Boys” who share their stories of survival and fortitude when driven from their homes due to genocide, as well how they strive to build new lives for themselves.

Goal

Provide a forum for students to build a more personal awareness of the impact of war and genocide and how victims cope to survive.

Objectives

  • Provide history and context for the political, religious and social events that led to the current situation in Sudan.
  • Personalize the perils and insurmountable odds the Lost Boys faced in their survival by sharing their experiences.
  • Share a compelling message of hope and fortitude to students who face their own adversities.
  • Inform students on how they can help the people of South Sudan.

Format

1-1.5 hour facilitated panel discussion with video footage and slide show with 2-3 Lost Boys followed by Q&A session. Engagements will be customized upon request
