Thousands of Darfuri children have missed years of their education. While the conflict has cost them all their possessions, the greatest grievance of Darfuris is missed educational opportunities for their children. Sudan’s government has ceased to provide teacher salaries, books or supplies in rural areas. The Darfur Schools Program was created to ensure that children had access to consistent, free education. DPDO currently supports 15 schools and pays salaries for 216 teachers and school staff.


To achieve success, DPDO will follow the Sudanese federally-mandated curriculum, ensure consistent income for teachers, keep a low student-to-teacher ratio, strengthen student performance by increasing supplies, and improve classroom conditions.

Long-Term Impact

Investing in education provides the best leverage for future peace and development in Darfur. At the DPDO Schools, students will learn to utilize peaceful methods of conflict resolution, instead of turning to violence out of desperation.
