David Jal, One of The Lost Boys of Sudan Born and raised in Northeast Africa in the Dunyal Village in Southern Sudan. His dream was to be a geography teacher. He did not plan on moving away but was forced out of his country when the civil war intensified in The Sudan. Only 10 years old, his dream of teaching was replaced by the desire for survive.
