This month, we are preparing to open a new literacy circle on the outskirts of Omdurman. On Thursday, our colleagues shared in welcoming our new literacy circle members in a celebratory get-together, which also served to help orientate our new learners.

Below some inspiring scenes from that lively meeting. The photos and the sketches inspired by those photos in this blogpost are provided thanks to a Sudanese friend. They are copyright and may not be reproduced.

Above, welcoming our literacy guests.

The gathering was very generously hosted by a local mentor and her wonderful mother, who is an expert in handicrafts and will be training our new literacy circle participants in needlework and other handicraft skills as part of the income generation component of their REFLECT literacy course. Below, some of our new literacy members enjoying coffee as they share their life experiences and their hopes for the future when they graduate from their literacy programme.

Nearly all those attending were the sole breadwinner of their household and were struggling to support their families by selling biscuits or working as cleaners in an area of Khartoum sadly lacking much basic infrastructure and community resources.

Below, some of the beautiful and highly skilled embroidery and needlework to inspire our new participants as part of their literacy and income generation training.

We very much look forward to following this new circle and supporting them in any way we can as they get to grips with their new learning experience.
