We regard education in Sudan and
South Sudan as a human right and promote personal and
community empowerment through service, taking our lead from what displaced
and marginalized people say they need.
"Power to the
powerless through education"
We believe that education of women is
the central building block of civil society. Our work is carried out through
a United Kingdom charity:
Women's Education Partnership
"Building peace through service"
Four Sudanese aid workers work in our project office in Khartoum supervise our work in the Khartoum area and support the university students. In South Sudan we relate directly to Silas Jojo at Kimu Health clinic and Dr Philip Wani at Juba University. We also work closely with Editha and Sarah at NWERO who run HIV/Aids outreaches in South Sudan on our behalf. Sadly we have had to close our centre in Kadugli in Sudan therefore our projects in the Nuba Mountains are currently suspended. However we plan to return to schools there when conditions allow.
In March 2014 the Director,Peter, visited our projects in Khartoum, Sudan and the outlying areas and Peter is in regular contact with our friends in South Sudan.
We make no religious or cultural distinctions in the way we allocate funds. Our aim has always been for disadvantaged women in Sudan and South Sudan, to flourish through the power of education. We want them to have a better future for themselves and their families where war and displacement in Sudan and South Sudan has caused deprivation,hurt and lack of opportunity. In both countries we want women to be educated, literate and healthy.
Our director, our patrons, trustees and officials of the Women's Education Partnership are volunteers and work from home.
We have just had good news from Khartoum about two recently selected
additional university scholars who are being supported by St Martin
in the Fields.This is really excellent news that we are very pleased
about. The new scholars are called Samra and Maab.We are delighted
to have this information from Neimat, our coordinator in Khartoum,
both women are presently studying at Ahfad University. Peter our
Director was very pleased to meet Samra and Maab above when he travelled to
Khartoum early in 2014.
