Montessori students braved the snow Tuesday for a unique opportunity to hear from a member of the Lost Boys of South Sudan.
The students were invited to take part in a video conference with Salva Dut of the Lost Boys after they raised over $12,000 to dig a well in the country. As a teen, Dut led 1,500 boys out of Sudan during the Second Sudanese Civil War. He now leads the organization Water for Sudan. The Lost Boys comprise thousands of boys who were displaced or orphaned during the war.
The students gathered at Thurgood Marshall School for the conference. The school was one of five nationwide that took part in the conference.
