Believing that the strength, determination, and diversity of the Sudanese people will enable them to build a peaceful and prosperous future, the Valentino Achak Deng (VAD) Foundation aims to empower war-affected Sudanese populations by:
1. Helping members of the southern Sudanese diaspora in the United States to enhance their educational, social, and economic opportunities.
2. Rebuilding southern Sudanese communities through the implementation of community-driven development projects that increase access to educational opportunities for children, women, and men.
3. Improving U.S. policy toward Sudan by educating the public and policy makers on the situation in Sudan.
