This holiday season, the Darfur Dream Team Sister Schools Program, or DDT, is celebrating our biggest accomplishment this year! Following DDT Manager Buky Williams' recent trip to the refugee camps in eastern Chad, DDT has released its latest progress report on the funds implemented in Goz Amer.
From 2011-2012, the U.N. Refugee Agency, or UNHCR, implemented $200,000 that was raised by schools, major donors, and supporters throughout the United States for primary education in Goz Amer refugee camp. Decisions regarding the use of these funds were based on a needs assessment carried out by UNHCR, implementing partners, and the refugees themselves. The funds improved the quality of education in Goz Amer schools by rehabilitating classrooms, providing schools supplies, improving teachers' performances, and making it safer to learn. Check out the report for more details and photos on how the funds raised by U.S. schools have had an impact in the lives of Darfuri refugees.
Thank YOU to all who raised funds and supported this great achievement. By supporting primary education in Goz Amer, we are providing the Darfuri refugee students with the educational tools they'll need to rebuild their lives, their communities, and Darfur.
