When the Sudanese government launched a new genocidal war in the Nuba Mountains in 2011, some of the first targets of government warplanes were schools. Teachers fled alongside thousands of their students into the relative safety of Yida Refugee Camp just across the border. With very little outside support, teachers and parents began building classrooms and teachers started working without resources for free. Today, many teachers are still working without a paycheck and the most basic resources. Many have even quit doing what they love to find another way to care for their family.
This crisis is now impacting the futures of over 25,000 children.
That's the bad news. The good news is that you can do something about it. Working with a local partner, we have started the Endure Primary School in Yida that is putting Nuba teachers back to work and children back into classrooms.
You can support these teachers and their classroom needs by starting a fundraising page and asking your friends and family to join you by giving towards your goal. The money you raise will help ensure a better future for these children and their country.
If you can't commit to fundraising right now, we encourage you to leave a lasting impact by making a contribution towards our efforts. Your gift will impact the Endure Campaign and these children in the following ways:
Your generosity can have a major impact in the lives of these children. The best part? A few bucks goes a lot further than you think! Whether you give $10 or $100, you can leave a lasting impact on Sudan's next generation of leaders.
You can also make an impact every single month by becoming a recurring donor. Signing up takes less than a minute and comes with some cool perks, including quarterly updates about our work.
