What You Can Do

Get Involved in Our Foundation’s Initiatives

Sudan Development Foundation (SUDEF) is a community-supported, volunteer nonprofit dedicated to empowering the people of South Sudan and helping them realize their potential, bring positive change to their lives and communities and transform their new nation.

We rely on the support of individuals, family foundations, and the collective strength and support of members of the community to realize these goals and achieve our mission.

We welcome your involvement and financial support. Organize an event for us. Learn about the Sudanese culture, history, resilience, and fortitude of the South Sudanese. Hold a house party, and invite friends over for a wonderful evening of photos, stories, or our short documentary film Grace Under Pressure - The Story of Kalthok.

You can work with us to create partnerships between health organizations, our clinics, and training programs, provide database support for our U.S. office, public relations, write an article on our organization's work, or request a radio or print interview with representatives of our organization. Hear the personal stories of some of the Sudanese who founded and work for SUDEF. These men fled their homes and families as young children, made their way across South Sudan by foot over many months of time to Ethiopia, fled back to Sudan and then ultimately to Kenya, and lived in refugee camps before coming to the United States as refugees in 2001.

Come join us, make your life better by being a part of making someone else’s life better.


All profits from the sale of Strong Like Bull t-shirts goes to SUDEF and supports the programs and partnerships we support in rural villages in South Sudan.


Thank you, Cynthia Davis of the Canvas Peace Project for the amazing event you held on October 18, 2014 for SUDEF.
