    Story

    We take our education for granted, but in Sudan there are still 3.2 million children between the ages of 6 and 16 who do not go to school. Numerous charities are trying to put a stop to this problem by educating as many children as they can from all over Sudan. However, they need help through generous donations to provide the essentials, such as everyday schooling materials. I have visited Khartoum before and I am making another visit in December, and I will be going to a local disadvantaged school hopefully bearing educational resources, equipment and money to improve other aspects of the schooling community in order to improve the lives of many children who do not deserve to be in the position that they are in. I hope that with your generous help we will be able to make a difference to the local community and the lives of so many children.

      Thank you for your support. Overall I ended up raising £1500. I took 85 kg worth of stationery from the UK.  Once in Khartoum, I bought further educational materials, 864 bars of soap, 9 kg of sweets, 432 packets of biscuits and several footballs. I took the donations and spent two days in the school learning about the school, meeting the three nuns that run the school and hearing the stories and ordeals of the children. Most of the children live in slums or on the streets. The remaining funds were used to buy all the textbooks for the school.
