Since 2003, more than three million people in Darfur have been forced to flee their homes because of ongoing conflict in Sudan. Currently there are almost 300,000 refugees in eastern Chad. In an effort to provide a quality primary education for these refugees, the Darfur Dream Team Sister School Program is asking middle schools, high schools, and universities to come together and support education at schools in the 12 Darfuri refugee camps in eastern Chad.
This summer, the Darfur Dream Team is encouraging students, teachers, and community members to participate in a Summer Service Challenge, a fun online opportunity to raise awareness and take actions in support of refugees. The challenges range from hosting a documentary screening, to raising funds for education, to volunteering in your own community. The Challenge kicks off on World Refugee Day and continues through July 31.
