Sponsoring bright students to attend top universities



“Education is the most powerful weapon which can be used to change the world.”
Nelson Mandela

Knowledge will be the basic building block that enables all that the South Sudanese strive to achieve. With no advanced educational institutions in South Sudan, we continue to sponsor a growing number of bright young students to attend Bridge2Rwanda where they study English, mathematics, and science for 10 months in preparation for success with college entry examinations at the top colleges and universities in the world.

How It Works

At Empower Kids, every initiative meets an important need for those living in South Sudan.

  • What is it

    Bridge2Rwanda educates 40 students for 10 months, focusing solely on English, mathematics, and science. We fund 4-5 students from South Sudan each year, in an effort to begin building "bench strength" for the future of South Sudan.

  • Why it's important

    In order for South Sudan to "catch-up" in a world that is not standing still, it will be necessary to have well-educated men and women in leadership positions who are capable of navigating through the myriad of challenges facing their country as they build a brighter, better, and stronger future for all citizens in South Sudan. Bridge2Rwanda continues to be an important step in this direction.

  • What's next

    With our commitment to fund 4-5 bright young men and women into Bridge2Rwanda each year, we envision a "stream" of college graduates returning to their country to assume leadership roles which will benefit the many millions of South Sudan who are seeking a brighter future.
