Ngor Majak Anyieth is the Founder & CEO of Education Bridge, an organization dedicated to creating flourishing South Sudanese communities through holistic education and conflict transformation. Majak’s passion for education stems from his life experiences. Growing up in the war-torn South Sudan, Majak had limited educational opportunities. At the age of 13, he left his home country of South Sudan for Kakuma refugee camp, Kenya, where he received most of his primary education. Today, Majak is committed to creating opportunities for quality education across South Sudan.
Majak is an alumnus of the University of Notre Dame. He was recognized in 2017 by Echoing Green for his work in education and peacebuilding in South Sudan and is a current fellow at the Anzisha Education Accelerator program.
When not championing education, Majak enjoys playing (or watching) basketball, listening to audiobooks or This American Life, and spending time with family and friends.
