|Our work in Chad|
We are working with Sudanese refugees who fled to Chad due to ongoing conflict in Sudan since 2003.
We are working with around 99,000 refugees in four of the largest camps. Our role in Chad has changed over the seven years that we have been there as people's needs have evolved. Here's what we are doing in 2012.
Solar cookers are resolving conflict over limited firewood between refugees and the local Chadian population.
Training ensures that people know how to use them and because woman and girls dont have to search for hours for wood they now have time to go to school.
Find out more about solar cookers and how you can help cook up peace.
Education for the next generation
Since 2004 we have seen a substantial expansion of our education programme. Currently overseeing 36 pre-schools, 23 primary schools and 52 literacy centres catering for more than 35,000 refugee children from pre-school and primary level through to 8,000 adults in literacy classes.
Having rebuilt schools to replace temporary structures that were put in place eight years ago, we are also providing school equipment and teacher training.
Coaching and mentoring Parent Teacher Associations in income generation means that they are taking more control of their children's education.
We are training local Primary Education Committees in management skills to ensure a quality education system across all four camps, that is governed locally.
