Daniel Yamun Ukang, president of the California Sudanese Lost Boys and Girls Foundation(CSLBGF), and Koor Gai, the foundation's vice president, welcome you. Our foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization located in San Diego, California. With the help of both John Dolan, Auxiliary Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego, and Lisa Petronis, MA, LMFT, Ph.D. of San Diego's Catholic Therapists, the San Diego Lost Boys of Sudan founded the California Sudanese Lost Boys and Girls Foundation in 2010.
Our first program is the educational assistance program that helps provide financial assistance to the Lost Boys pursuing degrees in local colleges and universities and working in various fields.
Our second program is the family emergency assistance program, which provides financial assistance to the Lost Boys facing evictions, death in their families, medical or dental bills.
And our third program at the California Sudanese Lost Boys and Girls Foundation is the support we provide to Awoda Primary School in South Sudan. We offer a daily meal, school supplies, uniforms, textbooks, desks/chairs, and teachers' salaries.
