Emmanuel Jal

Fight poverty through education. It is enlightenment, triggering creativity. Despite his accomplishments in music, Emmanuel Jal’s greatest passion is for Gua Africa. Besides building schools, his nonprofit provides scholarships for Sudanese war survivors in refugee camps and sponsors education for children in the most deprived slum areas in Nairobi. Join us in supporting Gua Africa. www.gua-africa.org In April, Emmanuel will receive a Visionary Award at Engineering & Humanity Week in Dallas. The award provides $25,000 USD. These funds will go directly to Gua Africa and will help complete Emma Academy, the secondary school in Emmanuel’s home town of Leer, South Sudan, in honor of Emma McCune.
