Tasmanian Writers’ Centre
We’re almost there – Pledge your Support
Get these books to South Sudan, and buy one for yourself too!
In 2014, after more than four years of collaborative effort with the Madi community in Tasmania, the Tasmanian Writers’ Centre published two books – When I Was a Boy in Sudan and When I Was a Girl in Sudan.
Now we’re selling as many books we can to raise enough money to send two thousand copies to children in South Sudan – concentrating on the Madi-speaking area of Loa. This cultural exchange will build a line of communication between Hobart, and the Madi people in South Sudan, helping to disseminate and strengthen their culture, language, and history.
Even though many Madi people live as asylum seekers in foreign countries, displaced from their homeland, we can still work to maintain their cultural dignity for generations to come.
You can help us reach this goal by visiting our Pozible Campaign Site, purchasing a book, and spreading the word to your friends, family and community!
