The Bor County Office in the USA, Bor County Development Association, could not thank you enough for delivering one of the greatest, if not the not the greatest, fundraising events ever conducted by our county in the USA. The fundraiser’s success was a culmination of generosity, hard work, dedication, and love by the members of Bor County in particular and Greater Bor in general as well as South Sudanese Community in the Greater Panhandle Area. You opened your wallets, purses, and piggy banks to generate $23,000 dollars in both cash and pledges. The Bor County Office in the USA recognizes the sacrifices you have made when each one of you donated and pledged during the event. Continue Reading

RE: BORCDA REVENUE COLLECTION PLAN
Dear members and friends of Bor county development association (BORCDA), allow us to greet you all in the names of our beloved county and of the almighty father. We hope this letter will find you all in good faith and health. As you all know that United States is a land made up of fifty states and we have members and friends of Bor County in majority of the states, it can be true that we in the leadership may not be able to reach everyone for face-to-face discussion on matters related to our organization. So we find it imperative to draft this letter as an attempt to reach every single member of Bor County in USA and engage him or her on the revenue collection plan and programs undertaken by the treasury team. Please find time to read and act on it.

Following our congratulatory press release to Aboudit Community and its donors published on The Bor Globe Network earlier today, we hereby once again share a few lessons learned from such an exemplary community development resource pooling initiative as discussed below:

First, we believe we can develop Bor County through different levels of leadership within our community. We can approach development through families, sub-sections, sections, Payams, County, and beyond up to the state, and national level. Aboudit Community has led the way this year with such a seminal fundraiser and we hope other sections within Bor County Diaspora (USA) will follow its suit. We in Bor County Development Association leadership support those sectional and Payam based community development initiatives.

The Bor County Development Association/Bor County Diaspora (USA) Chairman’s visit to Panhandle Area this year will be his second visit in little less than a year. Last year in March, 2015, Mr. Akol Aguek Ngong, then a candidate and aspirant for Bor County top office, visited Guymon, OK while on a campaign trail; a visit at which he met many of his county constituents; the same population he is looking forward to visiting and updating during this upcoming resource generating fundraiser on March 19 and 20, 2016.

The Chairman shared his views with the office of information and press that this time is different. It is no longer a campaign season. It is a community development season. This trip is purely a community update and resourcing collection mission because our community has asked us to lead and we should put ourselves out there to serve. And such community service requires those of us in the leadership to update our people and ask for resources to fund the projects we have designed and that we aspire to accomplish during the course of our 4 year tenure (we have three years left —– one year has already passed but with accomplishments).

That is why we are back on the road to share our agenda with our people and challenge them to dedicate a portion of their resources to that community agenda.
