A Lost Boy Found Scholarship Fund was founded by John Mayen Deng who was in the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya for nine years. Many nights, John slept with his eyes open, fearing for the lives of many children who were in the same conditions he was under in the refugees camps. Although he was one of a few who were able to find peace and stability in the states , he spent many sleepless nights thinking about the education of those left behind. With his newly found successes, John founded "A Lost Boy found" scholarship to sponsor children in the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya and give them the chance to get an education like he was presented with.
The leading title of his book is "A Lost Boy Found". John Mayen was one of the Lost Boys of Sudan who, through his hardships and headaches, was inspired to write his story of faith and survival. He shares his story with others to help bring to light the children who are struggling in the refugees’ camps in Africa.
