Raise Money for Children in Sudan Art Raffle

To raise money for organization Africa Education and Learning Initiative, a non-profit organization building schools for children affected by war in Sudan. http://africaeli.org/

Some background facts on War in Sudan:

Sudanese People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) is one of the many groups actively fighting under command of dictator figures in Sudan. The peaceful people of the Nuba Mountains live on the borders of Sudan and South Sudan; they are suffering as a part of being in the cross-fire between North and South.

1) South Sudan had been fighting for independence from North in a civil war, a war which lasted over 22 years. Issues primarily revolved around religious beliefs (Christians versus Muslim) and how involved Muslim laws became in governing people.
2) South Sudan gained independence from Sudan in 2011 after fighting for independence.
3) Various tensions ensued between North and South; fighting broke out again in December 2013.

Problem for People of Nuba Mountains Now:

1) There are many conflicts among tribes; lack of education and living in extreme poverty has left people in many regions of North and South Sudan with no futures and their only option is to fight.
2) Nuba Mountains are right on the border of South Sudan, caught between tribal wars within Sudan and enemies from the North.
3) Dictator Al- Bashir, leader of North SPLA, targets people of Nuba mountains. Little coverage in the media has stagnated the process of helping people there.

What Africa ELI is doing to Help:

1) Providing children survivors of war with a home, giving them a brighter future.
2) Project Africa Education & Leadership Initiative has created secondary schools in South Sudan for children whose age ranges from 14 to 26
3) 50% of scholarships are awarded to girls, a big step in the right direction for Sudan as many women are dis-empowered. Without education there is no other choice but to succumb to misogynistic standards of women in their society.
