the sudan partnership
As Gordon’s School established its partnership with the Khartoum International Community School (KICS) in 2017/18, in Khartoum, Sudan some our students started to ask if they could help people less fortunate than themselves living around the world. Their natural direction of focus was on Sudan and a student came forward with a proposal to help the existing charity the Women’s Education Partnership. This student-led society was a great success during 2017/2018, as the Sudan Partnership Society organised their very first Christmas Market stall and successfully raised money by selling mistletoe and other goods. This money was used to buy English Grammar books that were taken to Khartoum in March 2018. The Society created and presented a series of assemblies last year which highlighted the plight of many Sudanese individuals and raised awareness of human rights.
The Sudan Partnership Society is currently looking for students to help with their next campaign and hope to continue to support the Women’s Education Partnership, by raising awareness, fundraising and organising resource collections. They will work with IB students at KICS in order to run their campaign successfully.
During 2020/21 the Society has plans to raise awareness of Kids for Kids.
