One of our flagship peace building projects is in Jabarona Camp, which is located on the outskirts of Khartoum. In Arabic, the word Jabarona means “No Place to Stay”. The Camp is populated by internally displaced people due to conflict from other areas of Sudan.
Jabarona is a desert location, where food, sanitation, water, electricity and other basic necessities are scarce or non-existent. There is no proper access for children to go to school, and the ability to earn an income is limited to informal and illegal means. People, especially children, often have to leave the camp to beg inside the city area of Khartoum to make their urgent needs meet.
With the support from Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, we have delivered toys and other educational items for children to ease their psychological pain. We have also conducted peace building training on democratic concepts and basic human rights.
