EGY131 School for Sudanese refugees
Thousands of Sudanese refugees live in Cairo, the capital of Egypt. Many of those refugees are under aged children. For these refugee children the Anglican Church organises (primary) education. Whoever gets schooling, will have a better chance for a payed job later on in life. The lessons are given by Sudanese people who fled to Egypt long before. The security that the school provides, helps Sudanese children to deal with their past and losses.
why this project?
In June 2015 the school for Sudanese refugees in Cairo was opened first time. At this school around 200 Sudanese children are given education. These children cannot follow the regular primary education due to learning disability. The management of schools is exercised by the local Anglican St. Michaels Church. Deputies of the Christian Reformed Church believe that schools have a positive influence on the life of children and have promised financial support.
