The Organisation name


HELLO Keep ASAin your heart,

Fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters of Adhiok community, welcome to the most beautiful family. This is a family with a big promise to care guide and encourage her children to be better people in future. I am proud to be part of this gorgeous family how about you? However, there are some questions that we need to ask, where does that pride come from? How do we become better people in future? And what shall we do in order to achieve that promise? Well, one of the ways we can do that is to start to look at ourselves as one large family rather than a community, we also need to offer our hearts , minds, joint our hands and hope for the best. Let's hope that this website will connect and help us generate positive ideas for the development and prosperity of our loving family. Where ever you may be educated or not, rich or poor, old or young as long as you are a member of this family, we cannot be 100% happy when some of our family members are not. Let us share our joys and sorrows together. There "will never be any change when no action is taken." Our future is in our hands, it is up to you and me to improve it. The components of the ASA's LOGO may look complex to the audiences of the site, therefore, share with us by learning the meanings of those content symbols, the clutches of palm-trees known as Bun-Akuur are representing Adhiok ancestors' homeland which was abandoned by as an ever wet-swamp area which does not support human life at the moment. The clouds and rains represent the strong relationship between Adhiok and rain that means Adhiok society was known as a rain-maker community in South Sudan, therefore, Adhiok society is nick named as Wundeeng and Man-deng (rain's mother). Hand represents the protection of ASA dignity and future set-up objectives/aims by each and every member of ASA. Heart represents ASA's members' roles in one heart as a beloved and united people of Adhiok. Thanks everyone.
