Our Mission

To build resilient remote villages in South Sudan through locally-led quality maternal & child health, inclusive education and peace building programs.

The "Under the Tree" doctor.

Dr.Arik was born in Lou Ariik Village in South Sudan. He was fortunate to obtain an early education under a Tamarind tree which propelled him to fight all challenges and become a medical doctor. It is with this humility and gratitude that he founded Akougook Initiative to inspire change in his troubled home community in Lou-Ariik.
