300 More Young Refugees Learning English

Our on-the-ground partner in eastern Chad, Anne Goddard of CORD, informs us that 300 more young refugees from Darfur have joined English classes that meet early in the morning before primary school. This is yet another demonstration of the refugees' strong desire to learn and to secure education for their children, and it means that the English language course material we provide will find even greater use.

Recent photos of similar English classes in the Bredjing and Treguine refugee camps can be found in our Gallery.

Anne recently returned to Chad after being evacuated from the capital N'Djamena, where she was caught in fighting. She previously described this experience to us, and expressed her confidence that her team that remained behind in the camps would be able to keep the schools running. We are glad to learn that, indeed, her prediction has come true.
