San Francisco Event
Michael Kuany, founder of the nonprofit Rebuild South Sudan (rebuildsouthsudan.org) and one of the “Lost Boys” of South Sudan, came to the US in 2001 after a childhood spent in refugee camps. He and thousands of other children fled a bloody civil war in 1985. Since arriving in the States in 2001, he has received a master’s degree in Conflict Transformation, gaining skills and vision in paradigms of restorative justice and reconciliation.
Inspired by his own experience of the importance of education to the children he grew up with in refugee camps, Michael sees education as an essential foundation for a peaceful future for his struggling country. He founded the nonprofit Rebuild South Sudan in 2007 to build a school in his home village and promote peace.
Michael is just arriving from South Sudan, where ongoing violence and the threat of return to civil war afflicts a traumatized people. Come meet him and hear about his vision for peace THIS SUNDAY, April 27, 9:15 – 10:15 a.m. Congregational Church of San Mateo, 225 Tilton Ave., San Mateo, CA.
