Daniel Yamun Ukang, president of the CSLBGF, and Koor Gai, vice president welcome to you to California Sudanese Lost Boys & Girls foundation non-profit in San Diego. We are non profit 501c3.
The California Lost Boys and Girls Foundation (CLBGF) is a non-profit organization that fosters community-based assistance to The Lost Boys of Sudan living in San Diego County. With the help of Father John Dolan, Pastor at St. Michael's Catholic Church in Poway, Dr. Lisa Petronis, a San Diego psychologist, the San Diego Lost Boys from Sudan founded the California Sudanese Lost Boys and Girls Foundation.
The California Lost Boys and Girls Foundation aims at improving the lives of Lost Boys of Sudan and the larger community of Southern Sudanese in San Diego, throughout the country, and abroad. The project is a forum where supportive citizens, organizations and institutions unite, working together to help the Lost Boys actualize their goals and dreams. The ultimate dream held within the project is for the San Diego Lost Boys to obtain and manage a free-standing Lost Boys Center. The San Diego Lost Boys Center, then, will be the physical location for various meaningful programs. Some of the programs currently being designed respond to the Lost Boys' individual and collective needs. Programs in place at this time include educational scholarships, dental care funding and emergency assistance, and speaker's bureau.
