We are the Episcopal Church of South Sudan & Sudan University Partnership.

(That's ECSSSUP for short!)

We work shoulder-to-shoulder with The Episcopal University (TEU), a new Christian university in South Sudan, to educate leaders for a peaceful and prosperous nation.

South Sudan desperately needs doctors, nurses, teachers, engineers, agriculturalists, entrepreneurs and, most of all, great leaders who are committed to building their country.

We believe education in South Sudan is critical to the development of the world’s newest country.
