IACT is extremely dynamic in one of the most difficult refugee areas in the world, Darfur. Here is one of their latest endeavors, Little Ripples. #WeAreDarfur

#WeAreDarfur: A New Pond for Little Ripples
BY GABRIEL |MAR 28, 2017
Little Ripples have started to spread through another Darfuri refugee camp. Today, we celebrated the opening of a new Little Ripples Pond (our community-based preschool centers) in camp Djabal.
We have been coming to camp Djabal since 2008 and have been involved in supporting education since then. Our Refugees United Soccer Academy has been running in Djabal for four years. We have many friends and a deep connection with the Djabal refugee community, so iACT is definitely not new here, but launching Little Ripples is something special.
They start construction on a second Pond tomorrow, and one more will soon follow. As part of the launch celebration today, we also selected and announced the six teachers that will be running the Ponds and the Education Director that will help coordinate the program. It’s a strong team of women:
Fatima – Teacher
Guisma – Teacher
Sadia – Teacher
Azima – Teacher
Kaltouma – Teacher
Mariam – Teacher
Aisha – Education Director
Throughout training, there are three main teachers’ responsibilities that are repeatedly highlighted: teachers must always make sure the children are safe, having fun, and learning. I am confident that this group embraces these responsibilities. I can’t wait to see them in action, and I can’t wait to see children laughing and learning in their new Pond.
