The Sudanese Council of Elders would like to invite all Sudanese Community, social organizations and Nebraska community at large to attend a fundraising event. The funs raised at this occasion will go to-wards Sudanese Community and Cultural Center purposed by the Sudanese Council of Elders. The idea of “Helping Our Selves First” came as a result of many meetings held by Sudanese Council of Elders in Omaha and Lincoln. Youth violence in our community is on the rise and steps need to be taken to curve this phenomenon. Having center to run activities for our youth is the foundation of our journey to become productive citizens in our community.
