The Ayual Community Development Association (ACDA) is an Ayual Community-based 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization founded by the Lost Boys and Girls of Sudan from the Ayual Community. It was created out of a desire to promote positive change in South Sudan by providing educational support, health care and emergency assistance to Ayual community members both in and outside of South Sudan. The war during the twentieth century, between the Sudan People's Liberation Army and the government of Sudan has had a devastating effect on the entire community. The Ayual community has been adversely affected socially, politically, economically, emotionally, physically and educationally.
In 2004, ACDA established Pongborong Primary School, which served 300 students. With the support of ACDA, the school has grown to serve approximately 800 students in grades one through eight.
