update and invitation to support the project

Hello Darfur Women Network's Friends and Supporters,

Darfur Women Network (DWN) would like to express its gratitude for your generous donation. With it, you enable us to reach out to displaced and venerable families to raise their awareness about their rights and their children’s rights and to help them protect their children by earning a steady income.

 

The DWN conducted a study in internally displaced camps in South Darfur to generate information for designing and implementing a new program, ‘Women’s and Child’s Rights, Protection, and Empowerment Program.” The purpose of the study was to find the root causes behind children who were forced into child labor, becoming soldiers, and early mirage as well as dropping of schools to enable us to find solution.

This project will benefit 155 families and their 198 children (ages 7-16) who are working as child laborers at construction sites where they carry, load and unload heavy mershandise at markets. In addition to 48 children with physical disabilities.The goal of this project is to:1. Eradicate child labor and child soldiers and enhance child protection.2.  Provide children with safe environments to learn and develop. 3. Ensure the protection of women and children against violence. 4. Ensure equal access for displaced and vulnerable families - with focus on women and girls - through education, capacity building, sustainable development projects and financial resources. 

DWN will provide the Economic Empowerment Program to achieve our goals and to have a social impact on our targeted group (internally displace and vulnerable families) by earning an income to create stable families and support systems within the families to their children to go to school instead of work and to achieve their educational goals instead of drop-off-schools.

 Expected Outcome: The Economic Empowerment project results in empowering our targeted groups, displaced and vulnerable women, to achieve the following:

  • Recovered poverty
  • Aware of their rights and children’s rights
  • Create support system with families to help children to achieve their educational goals
  • Eradicate child labor and child solders
  • Increase enrollment of girls
  • Eradicate drop-off-schools
  • Trained on business skills, decision-making, marketing, networking, saving, peacebuilding

Update and Invitation

Hello our friends and our donors,

Thank you so much for your strong support and for your generous donations. We, the Darfur Women Network , apprecaite your willingness to continue stand  with us. 

Darfur is located in the western region of Sudan, covering approximately 170,000 square miles (440,000 square km).  Although Darfur is rich with natural resources, decades of neglect, underdevelopment and conflicts, left its inhabitants to suffer from severe food insecurity, disease outbreaks, and lack of basic social services.   These crises are especially exacerbated for the hundreds of thousand people, living in refugee camps in Chad. 

The Darfur Women Network (DWN) has experienced the most financial hardships due to COVID-19 since we partnered with GlobalGiving in 2013. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide financial support to make more safe stoves to protect women and girls from rape and from hostile attacks against females. However, we work collectively with refugees to dig more drinking water wells to tackle the issue of shortage of water in the camp despite dire needs for food, sanitation, and water.  Without your support, we will not be able to achieve our goals. Your endless support and donations will help us to meet an urgent need of soap and more water to enable the refugees to survive to stay sanitize during the pandemic. 

 This vulnerable population reflects the critical need for emergency interventions such as, raising community awareness about the pandemic, implementing quarantine and isolation spaces, distribution of personal protection equipment (PPEs), and providing them with basic necessities, such as, of food, clean drinking water, sanitation and health services.    

 Through our strong ties with refugee camps, Darfur Women Network (DWN) is engaged in community outreach to provide water, soap, and raise awareness to reduce the plight of COVID-19. 

 With your donation we were able to provide 1200 safe stoves to 1200 families in the camp. Your donations protected more than 1200 mothers and girls from rape and from the risk or hostile attacks. Also, reduced the trips to collect firewood by 75%, reduced the density of smoke during cooking process, and economically empowered women who make safe stoves in the camp.  Darfur refugees are in need of your help and contribution will make an impact on Darfur refugees in the Touloum camp in Chad to survive the COVID 19 outbreak.

Any amount of support helps,

Hello our friends and our donors,

Thank you so much for your genersous support and for your tireless standing with us. We appreciate it. 

The Darfur Women Network (DWN) has experienced the most financial hardships due to COVID-19 since we partnered with GlobalGiving in 2013. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide goods to the survivors of genocide in the camps despite dire needs for food, sanitation, and water.  Without your support, we will not be able to achieve our goals. Your endless support and donations will help us to meet an urgent need of soap and water to enable the refugees to survive to stay sanitize during the pandemic.  

More than three hundred thousand survivors of genocide are women and children- facing dire living conditions.They are still vulnerable to hunger, disease, malnutrition, and poor sanitation and health risks due to COVID-19.

 This vulnerable population reflects the critical need for emergency interventions such as, raising community awareness about the pandemic, implementing quarantine and isolation spaces, distribution of personal protection equipment (PPEs), and providing them with basic necessities, such as, of food, clean drinking water, sanitation and health services.    

 Through our strong ties with refugee camps, Darfur Women Network (DWN) is engaged in community outreach to raise awareness to reduce the plight of COVID-19. 

 With your donation we were able to purchase safety tools for our volunteers to go 25 meters down in water wells to dig and to clean to make water available for the communities.  The compensation of your support and their sacrifices will help the Darfur refugees in the Touloum camp in Chad to survive the COVID 19 outbreak. Darfur refugees are in need of your help and contribution will make an impact.  Any amount of support helps.   Please vist our prpject to doante Water Project (44315)
