Oxford University Press Donates and Discounts for Darfur

Oxford University Press has just agreed to make substantial donations and discounts available to us to help Darfur refugees in Chad learn English. The 75 teacher's books we requested from Oxford's Headway English language series will be totally free, and we will be able to purchase the student's books and audio at cost, a huge discount of 85% off!

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.

Thank you,!
