Project Nur and the Dut Jok Youth Foundation
South Sudan: Better Classrooms Brighter Future – Charity Event and Banquet Dinner
The event will is a collaboration of the efforts of both Project Nur and the Dut Jok Youth Foundation.
Project Nur is a University of Pennsylvania student interest group motivated by the idea of promoting human rights and civil rights through all inclusive programs and events. The group is led by civic-minded students hoping to create bridges to social justice through empowering people with knowledge of cultures and creating acceptance and mutual respect through dialogue.
The Dut Jok Youth Foundation was created by Dut Jok, a student at University of Pennsylvania originally hailing from South Sudan. The aim of his foundation is directed at harnessing the potential of Southern Sudanese youth by funneling resources and providing opportunities through education and sports to offset the post-war disenfranchisement of the current generation.
With this event, the two groups will work together to reach a goal of $600.00 which will be put towards fully funding one South Sudanese school’s educational materials and needs for one full year. Come join us as we watch a documentary on the recent history and current state of South Sudan, dine with us to a catered dinner and partake in a raffle event at the end of the night. Admission is 15.00 with a suggested donation of $20, $30 or $40 to help the cause. With extra donation, free raffle tickets will be included. All proceeds will go to the Dut Jok Foundation.
