AMS 6th graders have just finished reading A Long Walk to Water, a poignant dual narrative novel, illuminating the lives of two Sudanese children. Based on a real person and real events, Salva Dut flees his village in South Sudan after extremists from the north raid and pillage it. All boys who didn’t escape were captured and made to fight in the army against their own country. Nya, a fictional character, but based on real girls, spends up to 8 hours a day making the long trek to collect (dirty) water for her family in a war-torn and desolate, remote village in South Sudan. The Civil War in Sudan is the basis for the heart- breaking conflict both have to endure throughout this novel. Historically, the thousands of boys from Sudan who ended up at refugee camps (like Salva) have been called “The Lost Boys of South Sudan” and like them, Salva made the journey to Ethiopia as a teenager. He was eventually adopted by an American family, through the UN, and went to college in New York. As an adult, he returned to Sudan to find his dying father and founded Water for South Sudan.
Students in Mrs. Bahorski's have entered themselves in a contest sponsored by Water for South Sudan in which a gift of $1000 to this organization puts Avondale Middle School in a contest to win a visit from Salva Dut himself.
