My Story

A successful life is one that has overcome challenges. My family is certainly doing that now. They fled our village, Imurok, in Eastern Equatoria, South Sudan and are now living in the Rhino refugee settlement in Uganda. LASS is a place that prepares future leaders. The diversity here promotes love and unity among people of different tribes and cultures. My hope is to become a good leader so that I can transfer that knowledge to others in my country. I praise God that I am at LASS; it is a modeling ground for many opportunities.

I want to continue to the university to become a social worker and eventually work in the government of South Sudan because I want to change the existing system. - Mambu, July 2017

My Vision For The Future

  • I want to remain in South Sudan, and be part of the change I want to see
  • I hope to be self-reliant and self-sustaining
  • I want to become a good leader who is God-fearing, caring and approachable
  • I hope to transfer my knowledge on good leadership to others

My favorite scripture is Proverbs 12:28: "Good men and women travel right into life; sin’s detours take you straight to hell", it shows me the right path to follow. - Mambu, July 2017

The support for my education is enabling me to realize my dreams. I would enjoy having our supporters visit us at LASS. My prayers are for success, God’s favor and good health. - Mambu, July 2017
