Paulino Mamiir Chol
Mr. Chol was born on January 1, 1981, according to the UNHCR estimation in Twic County, Bhar El Ghazal region of South Sudan. At the age of 7, he was kidnapped by the Sudanese militias called Murahalin and survived long enough to be forced and 30,000 Lost Boys into years of survival in an Ethiopian Refugee Camp.
For decades, despite multiple kidnapping attempts by the Arab militias, evading airborne assaults, and the murder of his friends and family, Mr. Chol rose the leadership hierarchy to lead more than five hundred Lost Boys over 3000 miles, on barefoot, to their freedom as a Group Leader of the Minor Group 41 in Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya. Mr. Chol managed the Resettlement Program of over 7,000 Lost Boys from the Kakuma Refugee Camp to the United States, in which over 4,000 Lost Boys came to America, and 3,000 Lost Boys remained in Africa due to September 11 Attack and shocking corruption of selling the names of the real Lost Boys to the fake Lost Boys by the South Sudanese leaders and Kenyan officials, who were working with the United Nations.

Mr. Chol has a master’s degree in law and policy from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. Mr. Chol has a Bachelor of Arts degree in criminal justice from the University of Colorado.

It was a dark night, with only occasional scattered lights, glittering like stars on the plain. It flashed upon me suddenly: they were going to shoot me!
