Education is the only viable, long-term way for a refugee to move forward from disadvantage, restriction and limitation. Free a mind, free a life!
SOME REAL FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
If you’re reading this…
- There’s a high chance you attended school and received a good standard of education, paid for by either the state or your guardian.
- There’s a chance your school had qualified teachers, equipment, and resources.
- There’s a chance that staff could meet your needs and keep you safe and well.
- There’s a chance you learned something and are still putting that knowledge to use in your life.
In refugee camps across East Sudan, thousands of children have no access to schooling.
They don’t have these ‘chances’.
The opportunity is precious, and for too many it never comes. Education is everything for a refugee child. It’s a ticket to a better life, a liberation from harshness and hardship.
Support the next phase of Ethar’s Education Programme, and bring better chances to thousands of children.
