Together for Sudan - Educational Projects

This blog post is a gentle reminder to say that charities need our constant support through regular donations all year around.  I have been liaising with the webmaster in charge of the Together for Sudan website and he has asked me to promote the on-going need TfS has for raising funds for its Educational Projects.  Whilst the limited funding for these projects are diminishing fast the need to have adequate funds to keep these projects running are as valid as ever. 

As a new academic year approaches, let us help marginalised Sudanese women and children become better educated so that we can empower them to have better prospects in life.  As literate, educated people they have a better chance in securing employment so that they can help not only themselves and their families but take a leading role in their community and in the future of Sudan.
