Sudan Flag

Sudan is a country in northeastern Africa. It is the largest country in Africa and in the Arab World, and tenth largest in the world by area. It is bordered by Egypt to the north, the Red Sea to the northeast, Eritrea and Ethiopia to the east, Kenya and Uganda to the southeast, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Central African Republic to the southwest, Chad to the west and Libya to the northwest. The world's longest river, the Nile River, bisects the country from south to north. The people of Sudan have a long history extending from antiquity, which is intertwined with the history of Egypt, with which it was united politically over several periods. Sudan's modern history has been plagued by civil wars stemming from ethnic, religious, and economic conflict between the Muslim Northern Sudanese , and the Christian and animist Nilotes of Southern Sudan. Sudan is ranked as the third most politically unstable country in the world according to the Failed States Index, mainly because of the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Darfur, the high score of delegitimization of the state, and the wide spread violation of human rights.

Creatures of the Sudanese Sea - Khartoum
Creatures of the Sudanese Sea The southern half of the Red Sea is set in some of the most isolated country in the world, with barren desert on both shores. But beneath the sea's surface lies a rich and varied world. In the west, the Sudanese coast has coral mountains that shoot up from great depths through clear blue water to the surface, with a greater variety of corals than any other part of the Red Sea. There is now a small fleet of boats in Port Sudan, offering dive charters from October to June in this part of the Red Sea. Several boats in Sinai also make extended trips to Sudan, and an international airport has been built to serve the area. We chartered the Italian boat Wandu, skippered by Gianni Mandarino, who has been taking divers to th...

Getting children to school in southern Sudan - Khartoum
Getting children to school in southern Sudan In this hardscrabble town, where buildings consist of little more than rubble and tending cattle is one of the only realistic career options, getting children into school used to be a nearly impossible task. But today, the challenge is to accommodate all the students who are returning. In the wake of a 2005 peace agreement that ended two decades of war and the launch of the Government of Southern Sudan's ‘Go to School' campaign, supported by UNICEF, children here are flocking to school in droves. At Ager Gum Primary School in Rumbek, the capital of Southern Sudan's Lakes State, there are 4 classrooms for 15 classes and 3 latrines for close to 2,000 students and teachers. A rusted-out wheel rim doubles as the s...

Girls Education Movement amplifies Childrens Voices in Sudan - Khartoum
Girls Education Movement amplifies Childrens Voices in Sudan Every Tuesday morning, while her younger brother and sisters are still climbing into their school uniforms, Suku Jane Simon, 16, climbs onto a chair at Southern Sudan Radio, adjusts a pair of headphones and coolly announces the start of her own broadcast. “I advise every child – girl and boy – to go to school,” she says into the microphone. “Education is the key. When I see a girl who does not go to school, I say to her, ‘My sister, let us go to school, for you are poor in mind.'” Back to the classroom The programme, ‘Children's Voices,' is a weekly feature at Southern Sudan Radio. Co-hosted by students and teachers, the broadcast is just one of many activities organized by the local chapt...

Overland from Sudan to Eritrea, crossing from Kassala to Tessenei - Khartoum
Overland from Sudan to Eritrea, crossing from Kassala to Tessenei Yes, crossing the border between the two countries is possible since Autumn 2001 but demands a certain amount of preparation and paper chasing on the Sudanese side that should take the better part of two working days. To be honest, it seems as if Sudanese authorities in Kassala are trying to discourage foreigners from attempting this crossing but it is feasible none the less. On the other hand, entry procedures into Eritrea is simplicity itself: show your passport & visa, get your entry stamp and a warm welcome to Eritrea greeting along with it. It should not take more than 5 - 15 minutes, all depending on the length of the queue in front of you. Make sure that all your Sudanese paperwork is done according to the b...
