We want to see all children in Sudan have the opportunity to receive a quality education. We are working towards this by:
- Increasing children’s access to formal and non-formal education opportunities
- Ensuring children who attend school are learning
- Increasing the amount of engagement of parents, guardians, communities and volunteers in children’s education
What is the problem?
Education infrastructure destroyed during the protracted conflict has not been replaced fast enough to cope with population growth and the influx of newly displaced families.
Already high drop-out rates are even higher among girls who are often forced to drop out of school after they reach puberty because of a lack of gender-segregated sanitation facilities.
Children and families are often discouraged by the quality of education they receive as many teachers have left the field of education because educators are historically underpaid.
How is World Vision addressing the issues?
We are rehabilitating existing learning spaces, constructing temporary learning spaces, providing families and children access to necessary school supplies and providing training and support to teachers.
Is what World Vision doing working?*
Yes! The number of children attending schools in South Darfur and West Nile states has doubled from 19,710 in 2015 to 47,817 in 2017.
What’s the impact?
- In 2019, 35,437 children were benefiting from new or rehabilitated learning spaces and school supplies
- Additionally, in Darfur where World Vision has the school meals project, 76,126 children received lunchtime meals to improve enrolment and concentration in schools
