The foundation intents to create fully functioning sports complexes in every state of South Sudan by 2025. Our goal is to work with the locals to acquire land and build a sports complex every year. Each sports complex will have soccer, volleyball, cross country, and basketball academies. The foundation will run the sports complexes which will offer lessons for the respective sports by volunteers and hired coaches. Our goal is to elevate the level of sports in South Sudan. The Dut Jok Youth Foundation will provide adequate equipment and uniforms for each academy.
The foundation plans to carry out multiple large sports development camps in South Sudan and in the United States each year. The camps will utilize sports to engage and inspire the youth to pursue their dreams and prioritize education. The focus of these development camps shall be empowerment.
