Sudanese Australian Integrated Learning (SAIL)

Speaking at TFN Melbourne, Achok described the realities of growing up in a war zone - South Sudan. Now as President and Overseeing Coordinator of SAIL, she is determined to support other Sudanese families who are transitioning to life in Australia. Children migrating from a conflict area to a classroom can struggle to adjust and they often fall behind. SAIL offer tutoring that is more about education - it’s about community and family. Achok was raising money to upgrade their resources and training so they can continue to provide more educational support for Sudanese Australians.
