Equatorian South Sudanese Community Association - USA

The Equatorian South Sudanese Community Association–USA is a community-based organization of southern Sudanese in the US hailing from the Equatoria States in southern Sudan. It was founded 13 years ago in Missouri by a group of Equatorian Sudanese who felt the strong need to unite Equatorians in the United States. One of the objectives of ESSCA-USA is to help organize Equatorians in the various states across the US. The small state organizations partner with ESSCA-USA to promote the objectives of the association and the hopes and aspirations of the Equatorians in the Diaspora in general and the United States in particular. ESSCA-USA is a non-profit organization that was incorporated in the State of Iowa in 2004. ESSCA-USA acquired the federal non-profit, tax-exempt [501(c) (3)] status in 2008.
