South Sudan, the world's newest nation, but also the poorest and traumatised by decades of war for independence and now civil war as political factions struggle for power to lead and direct the country.
The priorities that guides Bright Star Foundation actions are...
The people of South Sudan are our guides - their opinion, wisdom, knowledge, and dreams lead us.
Where emphasis is needed it will be given to girls' education.
Money raised will be spent in South Sudan, if that is not reasonable, in Africa to support the local communities and economy.
Both Besta and I acknowledge the power of learning and education in helping us advance our own lives. We have both endured many challenging circumstances growing up and learning in classrooms including lack of access to resources or difficulty navigating a new educational systems, a new culture and language. These experiences have only worked as motivators to help us become mentors to people around us who may be struggling through similar situations
We value the need for education to create self determination and choice.
We aim to support others around us in the world to achieve their dreams and reach for their stars.
Out of that, Bright Star Foundation was born and it has led to a global community awareness around the need for access to education.
