Testimonials for Deng Adut

Deng was outstanding. He was able to engage with a wide variety of students, parents and staff. We are a K-12 school and had students from Yr5-12 (10yrs-18yrs) attend, all attending walked away with an appreciation of the impact of war and Deng’s incredible story.
MacKillop Catholic College

Deng Adut is so personable and students really appreciated his humour and his story, even though it is so far removed from their life experience. He really tailored his talk to our Catholic/Christian worldview and spoke to the students with content and ideas that complemented our College’s ethos e.g. compassion, respect, being pure of heart, wishing for others what you have for yourself. He also challenged their attitudes on refugees and how they can make a difference.
Oakhill College

Deng Adut's address was unbelievably powerful.  His story is humbling, tough and inspiring at the same time.
