A quote from a generous sponsor of one of our
university scholars at Ahfad University:
“Over twenty five years ago I went to Sudan as a very young
and very inexperienced teacher to work in a girls’ secondary
school. I was humbled both by the immense generosity and
kindness of the girls I had the blessing to meet there and
their determination, often despite incredible personal
hardship, to continue their education, become qualified and
go on to serve their community. They knew instinctively that
education was liberating and empowering and treasured every
moment they had at school. Sadly, because of their family
circumstances, so few of them were able to go to university.
Education empowers and that is why I was so happy to help
Together for Sudan in its essential work in building
educational programs and in particular, by helping a young
woman from the Nuba Mountains to go to university. It is
personally thrilling to be able to follow her progress and
feel that in a small way I have helped repay my debt to the
people of Sudan.”

"We are very happy with
Together for Sudan because you have done a lot to help education in the
Nuba Mountains. I visited some kinderegartens which were set up after
your Teacher Training and asked for more of this. Also, I went to the
graduation of teachers who were from the former Sudan Peoples
Liberation Army controlled area but had been trained by you with
teachers here in Kadugli. This was a very good idea. As a government we
are dedicated to cooperation with Together for Sudan and whatever you
ask we will try to help with. We hope to have more cooperation,
especially in Teacher Training. Let us plan together."
