Covid’s Impact on Women and Girls in Sudan

Looking Back

Above, some of our literacy circle participants taking part in our Covid-19 prevention campaign, 2020.

In early 2020, Women’s Education Partnership, in collaboration with Sudan’s Ministry of Health, undertook Covid awareness and prevention outreach among our Khartoum literacy communities. In this, the first of two posts focusing on the impact of Covid-19 on women’s and girls’ lives in Sudan, I look back on our vital work during the pandemic. Next time I will be discussing the way Covid is believed to have impacted both the education of Sudanese girls and women’s livelihoods two years on.

My article below, written for and published in the journal, Sudan Studies for South Sudan and Sudan in July 2020, documents the context of the pandemic and our work to protect our women’s literacy communities – among the poorest in Khartoum.
