children at school in Egypt

This establishment, the Sudanese Displaced Learning Centre, is located in a very poor neighbourhood of Cairo. It started in 1994 and operates on the Sudanese curriculum published by the Sudanese Government. The teaching is in English with Arabic instruction offered. The centre has a Christian ethos but the education is tailored to equip the children in a culturally relevant way to be able to return to Sudan which is their home should the opportunity arise in the future.

There are around 200 students in the centre from Grades 1 to 11. 

Without this institution there would be no opportunity for the children of refugees from war torn Sudan to receive an education that will equip them for the future, whether that future is in their adopted country, in their homeland or in another country in the west.
