Conflict over scarce resources and the lack of solutions back in South Sudan led University of Toronto alum James Thuch Madhier to found his non-profit development organization, Rainmaker Enterprise. Madhier came to Canada with the World University Service of Canada’s (WUSC) Student Refugee Program, graduating in 2018 from the University’s Peace, Conflict, & Justice Studies program in 2018 and successfully established the Rainmaker Enterprise. With the help of a social enterprise competition he won back in 2016, by 2017 Madhier was able to pursue his idea of implementing a solar-powered irrigation system throughout South Sudan through his organization, the Rainmaker Enterprise. To foster peace and security, Madhier wants to develop farmland rich in resources like livestock and clean water, as the lack of these resources has been a primary cause of inter-community conflict in South Sudan. Madhier aims to focus on the local, providing volunteer placement programs to empower South Sudanese farming communities.
