Salida Circus Outreach Foundation, Walk for Sudan in Salida

South Sudan gained independence in 2013 but with its freedom came meager literacy rates and educational infrastructure. Prior to its independence, Salida Circus Outreach Foundation, in Salida, Colorado, has supported Project Education South Sudan with fundraising efforts and educational talks. As a recent recipient of a seed grant, the Foundation is able to implement the Walk for Sudan in Salida project, which will bring out two former lost boys of Sudan to share and speak of their experiences with hopes of continuing to raise funds for youth to pursue education.
