Sudan’s Blue Nile State, situated along the country’s southeastern border, has known war for more than 60 years. Though it’s dwarfed by protracted humanitarian crises in neighboring Darfur and South Sudan, Blue Nile State is home to one of the world’s forgotten crises.

Education is often the first service to disappear in emergencies and the last to be resumed. Traditional aid prioritizes peoples’ most immediate needs – such as food, water, shelter, and protection – with only a fraction of funding put towards education. Yet, education is critical for securing brighter futures for individuals whose lives have been disrupted by conflict or disaster. With support from Bader Philanthropies, Relief International works to reach and teach generations of children in fragile settings who are disproportionately denied access to education. Our educational programs actively target the most marginalized students, particularly girls.
