South Sudanese community hopes to bond

  • Print

The South Sudanese community is holding a fundraiser May 4 to fund a new program that will bond families together.

The Dinka Families Learning Together (DFLT) program was created to eliminate a breakdown between South Sudanese youth and their parents.

Organizers of the program said in a press release that families are breaking apart as young people adopt Canadian lifestyles and their parents trail behind.

"The clash of the two cultures has resulted in poor communication at the family level, hence creating a breakdown of family units. The DFLT, therefore, is aimed at rebuilding families and advanced English and Dinka literature among the youth and parents," said the release.    

The program will teach young people the traditional South Sundanese language of Dinka and their parents English so families can communicate better.

The fundraiser will be a traditional South Sudanese dinner held at the South Sudanese Community Centre, 129 Dagmar Street in Winnipeg.
