Friends Unite announced that it will partner with the Southern Sudan Fellowship (SSF) to help children in Southern Sudan. SSF is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization whose mission is to improve the lives of Sudanese families in North Carolina and Southern Sudan through education, enrichment, and cultural exchange.

It is also being considered as a school exclusively for girls. “Friends Unite supports access to education for children who otherwise do not have it. What SSF is doing in providing education to children in Southern Sudan is something Friends Unite can enthusiastially support,” says Murali Bashyam, President of Friends Unite.
