Challenge

When the world hears about Sudan, it is most often about the violence in Darfur.But the problems in Sudan are much more widespread. Most of Sudan’s nearly 40 million people have never known a time when their country was at peace. Women suffered horrible abuses during the decades-long wars, having been targeted for violence by armies on all sides. Two million women have been raped, four million uprooted and hundreds of thousands live in refugee camps.

Solution

2000 women will receive rights-awareness education and literacy training. Once they're able read, write, and do simple addition, they can take the next step to opening their own business, join a woman’s cooperative and pass her literacy skills on.

Long-Term Impact

Helping women move from victim to survivor to active citizen benefits families, communities and nations. Program graduates have become businesswomen, farmers and community leaders; supporting our conviction that stronger women build stronger nations.
