Illiteracy is widely spreading amongst the villagers of the River Nile state. Within the primary targeted area, a small fraction of children are completing their primary education. Infections and water born diseases are wide spreading. One survey among local school pupils revealed that 96% were infected by Schistosomiasis, a water borne parasitic condition that is known to cause terminal liver disease. Elsulaimaniya Trust was registered as a charity in Scotland in November 2009 (Registered Scottish Charity No: SC041063) in an effort to combat this.
The Trust’s policy is to provide its services by working with local community organisations. Primarily, we are partnered with the Abdulrahim Elyas Charitable Association for Development (ACAD). This is an organisation registered with the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs in Sudan. Their efforts started by initiating small agricultural schemes in the area. This lead to the establishment of the first primary school and medical treatment unit in 1969. More recently, they initiated small local development projects and training programs.
