Ngor Garang Tong

Ngor-Garang-Tong-South-SudanNgor Garang Tong is a 5th grader at Salva Kiir Primary School, in Aweil Town, which is in Northern Bahr el Ghazal, South Sudan. His school is one of several in the area where we have recently worked on projects. Ngor has a small afterschool business of shining shoes and said he uses his money to help his mom feed his family of himself and six siblings. He told us he is trying to save more money so he can build his family a safe and secure house. Ngor said he loves school and attends every day, without ever missing. His favorite class is English. Ngor is very focussed on working hard at school and getting the best grades he can. He told us when he grows up he is going to become governor or community leader.

I just love hearing about kids like Ngor. I hope that you
will be able to pursue your dreams of becoming a governor or a community leader and can finally help stop poverty from happening. My hopes and prayers are with you and your family and May God bless you all.
