On Monday, Oct. 28, fifth graders at R. Roger Rowe kicked-off their first Kind to the Core project by attending a presentation on The Lost Boys of Sudan. They heard from Judy Bernstein, the author of “They Poured Fire on Us from the Sky” and Deng Abiel, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan. The “Lost Boys” is a name that was given to thousands of Sudanese boys that were displaced and orphaned during the Second Sudanese Civil War. The group then traveled barefoot for years in search of safe refuge. After much time at refugee camps, the U.S. Government and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees gave several boys the opportunity to resettle in the United States. The 5th graders will be following up with an act of kindness aimed towards helping the Sudanese youth here in San Diego.
