Friends of Kajo Keji College
Friends of Kajo Keji College has teamed up with
Projects Delivering Hope
Who are we?
Friends of Kajo-Keji College was set up to provide financial support to Kajo-Keij Christian College when it was forced to relocate to Uganda in 2017 following violence in South Sudan. It consists of a group of UK based donors who each provide at least £5 a month to support the college and the important work they do to provide education for the South Sudanese. John and Cathie Rutter are the founders and worked at the college in 2017-2018 with the Church Mission Society, John teaching Theology and Cathie working in admin and finance. If you would like to join this group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
