This summer, JPII's Senior Class has taken on the challenge of raising $15,000 to construct the first classroom of a new secondary school in Liliir, South Sudan. The project was inspired by our senior's friendship with Mr. Jok Nhial, the founder of Liliir Education Project.

History Jok1Mr. Nhial was among the children we know as the Lost Boys of Sudan. Between the ages of five and eleven years old, these 20,000 boys from the Nuer and Dinka ethnic groups ran from their homes during the extreme violence of the second Sudanese cival war. They fled death or forced conscription as boy soldiers and travelled more than 1,000 miles to the relative safety of refugee camps. Less than half their number survived.

Along with others, Jok Nhial was relocated to the United States. He has been educated at Foss High School, Gonzaga University and Seattle University and is now dedicated to building educational opportunities in South Sudan.

Mr. Nhial served as the keynote speaker for JPII's 2014 Light & Truth Gala May 3, 2014.
