Sensitization on UNAMID mandate focus of school visits in North Darfur
UNAMID’s Community Outreach Unit (COU) recently conducted visits to Almustagbal Basic School for Girls and El Fasher Secondary School for Girls in North Darfur; these took place on 2 and 4 October 2017, respectively. Information and educational materials incorporating messages on UNAMID’s activities across Darfur were distributed among the students during these visits, while COU representatives spoke with them about the Mission’s mandate.
More than 2,000 students, teachers and members of the Student Activity Department, El Fasher, attended both events, which included musical performances and quiz competitions on the Mission’s interventions as well as the ongoing peace process in Darfur.
Additionally, students were given exercise books, volleyballs and school bags that carried the slogan, “No Life without Peace.”
Abdul-Aziz Salim, Director, Student Activities Department, commended UNAMID for supporting education in Darfur and emphasized that the Mission is playing a vital role in sensitizing communities on the culture of peaceful coexistence.
