Tomorrow: Join a School Assembly with Darfuri Students

Posted by Olabukunola Williams on March 28, 2011


Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 29, you can be a part of the conversation I have been having with teachers and students in Goz Amer refugee camp in eastern Chad, home to thousands of people who fled Darfur. This is an amazing opportunity to connect and interact with them as they share their stories and talk about their school.

I have had the chance to talk to students like Ali, Alfadel, and Sadia who are learning English because it will give them the chance to learn more about the world around them. They have teachers like Alfati and Yusuf who get together with other teachers to teach themselves English so they can be better at their jobs. Their commitment to education and their community is inspiring.

To join the conversation and ask questions, tune in tomorrow at 10 a.m. ET to participate in a Darfuri refugee school assembly via livestream.
