Juba, 1st August 2018. The Gbudue State whatsapp forum launches education fundraising in Juba for students who cannot support themselves to continue with their studies.
The fundraising was launched on Saturday at Episcopal Church of South Sudan Diocese of Juba.
While speaking to Anisa Radio, Forum administrator Basumo Abiuda says the fundraising started on Saturday and is expected to end on Tuesday.
The forum is an online initiative and has members all over the world thus their operation is basically on social media platforms.
Abiuda says they are aiming at creating their own scholarship instead of relying on others.
The forum was initiated in July 2017 by a group of Gbudue State intellectuals worldwide.
Last year the forum supported candidates in Gbudue and paid teachers who were supporting them with coaching.
The speaker was talking to Anisa Radio on Monday from Juba.
