The Charity eduction program has the privilege of supporting many schools. One of these schools is in the most remote and poorest area in the outskirts of the three cities forming the Capital of Sudan which is Khartoum. It started in 2011 with only two classes and every year a class was added. This academic year the school have added the 7th class and next year we will complete the basic education system which is formed of 8 classes. They started with few children, whose families had to flee war raging in zone areas and found shelter in the remote area of outside Khartoum. Little by little and year after year they encouraged these families to send their children to school. Now the school counts more than 346 students between boys and girls. Most of them are the first to be educated in their families. The word family in a broad sense as the majority have lost in war either the father or mother or brothers and sisters and are living either with relatives or elderly members of the family. It has not being an easy task to run the school counting only on the symbolic contribution they receive from the pupil’s families, but that difficulty has not stopped the determination to carry on the educational programs. The school operates now in accordance with the programs issued by the Sudanese Ministry of Education. Education plays a fundamental role in giving hope and a sense of future to all those who have experienced death and destruction.
The Charity Organization also provides to many other schools financial assistance for tuition, school costs; room & board, related educational costs and school supplies for needy members of the community. Expenses that could be covered include the cost of residence at a school. The beneficiaries are selected on the basis of financial need and come to the attention of the Organization through volunteers’ personal knowledge and through individuals approaching the our international agents. Beneficiaries must attend an approved educational institution. The agent makes the selection suggestions to the Organization and the Board of Directors of the Organization makes the final decisions in Canada.
The Charity will advance education by establishing and operating a private primary and secondary school, in Khartoum, Sudan, for members of the community at large. The Charity will raise funds to establish and operate a school at another appropriate location in Sudan. The Curriculum will be in compliance with the state curriculum then in force by the Sudanese Ministry of Education. The location will be in Khartoum and the property will be owned by the Organization. The Organization will work to select a site for a primary and secondary school. The school building would be owned by the Organization and the Organization would attend to the costs of staffing, supplies and equipment. The Organization would enter into a Service Agreement with the Coptic College in Khartoum with respect to the day to day operations of the School. The Organization will establish an Education Advisory Committee to oversee this project from site sourcing, budget creation, fundraising, building, equipping, staffing and day-to-day running of the School. This project will probably take 5-10 years to amass the required funds and to commence the steps that the Education Advisory Committee will oversee.
