Revd Thomas Anei

Revd Thomas Anei Ordained priest in the Episcopal Church of Sudan, and Project Manager for Five Talents International, Thomas grew up during the Civil War period in Sudan amongst great turmoil and hardship.  Losing both of his parents and many other family members and friends to the war, at the age of 12 he joined the Sudan People's Liberation Army as a child-solider.  Two years later he left the army and entered schooling where he found the Christian faith and later begun the long process of training for ordination, which he received at the age of 26.  Soon after, Thomas began working with Five Talents to help organise a microfinance initiative within Sudan and he continues to raise funds and awareness for the programme which is seeing increasing success.
