REACT connects Darfuri Refugee schools with primary schools in Hackney London

No comments

In December 2016,  REACT successfully implemented a collaborative educational project with Darfuri school teachers from the refugee camps in Eastern Chad. Centered around the ‘Right to Play’,   3 primary schools in East London UK sent donations of sports equipment and educational resources to Darfuri refugee schools in Chad. The children from both UK and Chad also exchanged letters about their daily lives and aspirations. The donations of  500 pairs of football boots and girls sports shoes were distributed by the Darfuri teachers to students who excelled in particular subjects and who also had regular attendance. Further donations from REACT were stored by the teachers to provide an incentive to students to attend classes.
