Our first year.

Today is the one year anniversary of Josiah and Friends!

When I asked Manute Bol what I could do to help him build schools in Sudan, I don’t think any of us could have imagined what would happen in just one year.

We held an art auction. We were on TV a bunch of times. We did a mini-golf fundraiser. I wrote a song about Sudan with my friend Tom. But the best part is that we’ve raised over $3,325 to help build a school in Turalei, a small village in Southern Sudan!

When we began this project the school had just three rooms with no roof. Now it is almost done with six classrooms, a solar-powered well for fresh water, and these kids are getting a nutritious meal every single school day!

I want to thank you all for your support. We couldn’t have done this without you. We still have a ways to go so let’s work together and keep going!
