Case study: A chance to go to school
“The school is beautiful, we’re very proud of it. Now we have proper classrooms and chairs and things it’s less stressful and easier to learn”. Faizah, Sudan
Faizah lives in a remote village in central Sudan. Her school was made of makeshift materials. There was no roof, so if it rained pupils and teachers simply got wet. There were no seats, and stationery and books were hard to come by.
Thankfully, Faizah’s school has been rebuilt. CAFOD worked with local experts to provide chairs, stationary, books – everything the students and teachers need to teach and learn effectively. In addition, the students have started to take part in national exams. They’ve already achieved an excellent pass rate! A formal education opens up so many opportunities that these children would have otherwise gone without.
