The Jesuits of Eastern Africa are present in Rumbek town and run a computer and ecological centre. In 2010 local land owners approached the Jesuits in search of help. The local landowners occupy land 10 kilometres outside of Rumbek town. They live in a rural location with few services. Their request to the Jesuits was to help them develop their community by building a school. They contributed a section of land for this purpose. After much discussion and consideration it was agreed that a multi educational agricultural institute would be appropriate. The multi educational dynamic allows the institute to move with the needs of the people and the changing needs of the Nation. A farm in the school would assist the local community to become self reliant and provide a source of food for the institute.
