Thank You !

This post to dedicated to all those who so very kindly sponsored our Women’s Education Partnership Christmas Day Sponsored Walk. It was humbling, given the terrible circumstances everyone has faced over recent months, that so many supporters and friends from Spain, USA and UK generously contributed to our appeal. It is a wonderful message of hope from across the miles, for a better future for our sponsored orphans in Khartoum. We are so grateful to all our supporters.

On a personal note, I would like to offer special thanks to all those dear friends who donated from the UK and also those who supported us from my beautiful Spanish village, Chinchón, as well as so many former Sudan English teaching colleagues. Scroll down to see the amazing amount your generosity has made possible.

You can see details of the walk in From a Spanish Village to Khartoum.

The money raised will go towards vital repairs to severely flood damaged elementary schools and will dovetail with our extensive teacher training program for elementary school teachers, run in collaboration with the Sudanese Ministry of Education and which will start later this year. More on this exciting initiative later this month. Thanks to you, school building repairs are now underway.

Amount Raised

When gift aid allowances are included, we raised almost 2000 pounds online through our Virgin Giving Page. A further three hundred pounds was pledged towards the walk off-line too, making the total raised close to:

This fund feeds into and complements funds raised by Women’s Education Partnership Festive Appeal, headed by our Patron, the distinguished Sudanese writer, Leila Aboulela. See Leila Aboulela and Latest News.
