Hello our friends,

Thank you for your generous donation and for taking opportunities to participate in letting women and girls by improving their lives. We appreciate your investing in DWN wok.

The Darfur Women Network, DWN, committed to provide economic empowerment service to displaced and vulnerable women to improve their lives and their communities.

What is the problem?

Over two-million people remain internally displaced struggling with dire living conditions and left with no choice but to live in crowded camps and scattered settlements.  The majority of them are women and children. In addition to challenges to mental and psychological wellbeing, these families are suffering from poor lack of access to basic health, education, water and sanitation. Children are forced into child labor.  Girls often are vulnerable to sexual violence and are forced into early child marriages.   Many children, less than ten years old, spend their day working, and do not get a chance to experience their childhood or a fair opportunity to receive education.

What is our solution? The Darfur Women Network, DWN, is committed to providing education for dropouts and Women’s Economic Empowerment Programs, which enable families overcome poverty, adapt means of sustainable development, and empower women to improve their livelihood. 

The Darfur Women Network committed to serve the displaced and vulnerable families through the following projects

  2.2. Education Program: The DWN committed to address the needs and to design comprehensive program to provide dropouts from displaced and vulnerable families with quality education to reduce their risk of abuse, exploitation, trafficking and child labor. 

   

2.3. Economic Empowerment/Growth Program: The DWN provides women with access to education, training, financial assistance, or resources needed to earn sustainable sources of income to enable women to support their children to learn. Raise awareness about women and girls’ rights, secure steady income for dropouts’ mothers to support their children to learn –with focus on girls.

 

 This way the project shall contribute towards participants’ resiliency and addressing part of the millennium development goals of the United Nations (SDGs) for 2030. It is aligning with SDGs such as education, sustainable economic, resilience, promoting a peaceful and sustainable society, capacity development, financial resources, and partnership. 

      The DWN invite you to our INTERNAITONAL WOMEN’S DAY FUNDRAISER    CAMPAIGN:

Thank you so much for supporting this project to help displaced and vulnerable families in Darfur, Sudan. The genocide in Darfur has left its inhabitants to suffer from food insecurity, disease outbreaks, and lack of basic social services. These crises are especially exacerbated for the millions of internally displaced people, living in camps.  

Women and children make up the majority of the residents in the camps and they are unable to meet their basic living needs.  Lack of social services coupled with the absence of critical infrastructure for drinking water and sanitation expose these vulnerable communities to numerous challenges, life-threatening situations, including malnutrition and diseases.  

Most of these communities have been suffering from severe trauma as they witnessed horrific atrocities inflicted on their families, while watching their villages, water resources, livestock and farms get completely destroyed.  They continue to face protection risks, especially women and girls who are constantly threatened by harassment and crimes of sexual violence.   

Most of the internally displaced women originate from villages with limited education and skills to earn a steady income to provide for their children. Despite that, these women continue to be the main providers for their children and families. Every morning, women head to towns early, walking for miles from their camps - which are typically located in rural areas or in the outskirts of cities - searching for work to earn a little to feed their children. They go door to door, but sometimes they cannot even find work because the entire region has been impacted by the economic crisis.

Suffering has doubled due to COVID 19. They have to work outdoors, they lack personal protective items, lack awareness, and healthcare. This is a disaster, and we need the survivors of genocide to continue to survive, with GlobalGiving and our donors support, the displaced and vulnerable people will hopefully survive. 

Darfur Women Network (DWN) is committed to empower displaced and vulnerable families to send their children back to school and to support them so they can achieve their goals. DWN built their capacity to earn study income and raises their awareness about their rights and their children’s rights. This project will reduce poverty, child labor, sexual violence, school dropouts, and create community support mechanisms to ensure a safe environment in which every child is protected from any form of violence, abuse, and violation of their rights.

Now, the DWN is working on regestering a chapter in Darfur to empower displaced women and send their children to schools.

The Darfur Women Network invites you to donate to displaced, vulnerable women and their children. #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to harness the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in your community. During these challenging times, GlobalGiving is launching its largest #GivingTuesday to date, with $1 million to give away to our community on December 1, 2020!

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.

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
