Japan Assists Sudan with School Construction


Amid the pervasive violence within and just across Sudan’s borders and the devastation already caused to its infrastructure thanks to a decade long conflict in Darfur, Japan has offered $441,133 to help build elementary schools in the White Nile and Dassala states in Sudan. The project will fund nine schools, seven in the Al-Gitaina area in the White Nile state, and two in the al-Katmiya region of Kassala. Combined, the project will serve more than 1,400 students, and includes plans to construct eight classrooms and four office buildings. “Japan’s Embassy places great importance on supporting primary education in Sudan and the official launch of two projects today is clear indication of this approach,” said Japanese ambassador to Sudan Ryoichi Horie.

New schools are needed to address Sudan’s drastically underequipped educational infrastructure. Among the world’s poorest and least literate countries, there are nearly six million school dropouts in Sudan. Still, projects like these are having some impact. UNICEF announced earlier this month a project to train 2000 teachers and 4,500 school headmasters, expanding education to more than 100,000 students in Darfur. This announcement by Japan coincides with another project announced by Plan Sudan to train an additional 80 teachers in Kassala.
