Our Orphans’ Schooling Programme
Above, learning activities for our elementary school pupils.
This is the last of three posts this month outlining the work of Women’s Education Partnership in Sudan. Our University Scholarships give bright young women from disadvantaged backgrounds the chance to study at leading universities in Khartoum and our Women’s Literacy Programme (see Opening Doors) enables those who have never had the chance to go to school to become literate and numerate.
Our Orphans’ Elementary Schooling Programme supports children and their teachers in some of the poorest communities in Khartoum. We work in elementary girls’ and co-educational schools with pupils from 6 to 15 years old. Many have experienced trauma and precarious living conditions.
We identify orphan children most in need, fund their elementary school fees, school books and uniforms. We also pay desperately low-paid teaching staff’s salaries and incentives, We also supply school benches and teaching aids where needed.

Our Teacher Training Programme
We recognize the need for teachers working in challenging conditions to receive the training that will both motivate and inspire their pupils. Our teacher training program is carried out in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and is funded by The British and Foreign School Society.
