The Darfur Dream Team’s Sister Schools program is kicking off the year with the launch of a social networking site and a bi-weekly newsletter. Through these exciting new initiatives, the Sister Schools program hopes to engage a wider audience and foster relationships between Darfuri and U.S. students. Over 350 schools in the last year joined the effort to provide quality education in the Darfuri refugee camps.
With the start of the social networking site, participating U.S. schools will have access to an online community that will connect them with other U.S. sister schools, and eventually, to their Darfuri counterparts in Chad. The site will feature profile pages, blogs, and the ability to share multimedia.
Sister School’s bi-weekly newsletter (the inaugural issue was released today) will provide regular updates on the program, share upcoming events, and feature profiles of participating students and schools. (Sign up to get the next edition here.)
Also, check back in soon to the Darfur Dream Team website for profiles of Sister School’s newly-selected Regional Coordinators.
