Welcome to One In Four Children Inc
who we are

we are One In Four Children

One in Four Children is Founded by Stephen Kamal, himself a child of war and former refugee. Stephen left the Nuba Mountains in 1996 after the intensely horrific war, drought and famine and disease outbreak that resulted in an estimated 100,000 to 200,000 deaths, and the displacement of over 1 million people in the Nuba Mountains in what many described as Genocide against the Nuba. Stephen see’s education as a pillar of society. He was inspired to start One in Four after many conversations with Nuba children in Refugee camps living in Uganda, Sudan, Egypt and Kenya, in which many said lack of quality books was a major pain point for them. Along with Peter Sambia Kagi Kowa, they set out to change the narrative for so many of these children stuck in a complete cycle of poverty and ensure knowledge is attainable for all who seek it.

Our main vehicle of change is by setting up and stocking school libraries with books for the benefit of the whole community in Sudan, South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya and PNG. We chose books because we believe books change lives. We know because we’ve lived on both sides of the fence and the difference some literacy in the way of being able to read and write can make is immeasurable.
