How education is changing lives in Darfur, Sudan

For an entire generation of children in Darfur, school has been a luxury that comes and goes during times of relative stability. With each wave of violence, more kids are left behind.

War Child is responding by providing displaced children with an opportunity to get back on track, often using an accelerated learning program. It is an efficient solution because it combines two grades into one year, while still fully preparing students to write their exams.

In June 2011, children in Sudan’s Geissan locality, Blue Nile State, were eager to return to school after the long summer holidays. For Amel Sadig, 10 years old, this was supposed to be the start of her educational journey.

Becoming educated in poor rural areas of Sudan can be a child’s best route out of poverty. But when violence broke out in several areas in Blue Nile state in 2011, thousands of families, including Amel’s, were forced to flee their villages and settle around Ed Damazine and other towns in the state. Thousands of children were forced to stop their education.

KHARTOUM, Sudan – 9 June 2015. UNICEF in coordination with its implementing partners and UNHCR has been supporting the Government of Sudan in responding to the humanitarian needs of girls and boys affected by the war in South Sudan, since December 2013. Children represent over 60% of the South Sudanese refugees, as well as over 60% of the Sudanese returnees. Children in host communities, where camps have been established, have been generous by sharing their schools. However, the high demand for education is straining the existing facilities.
