What We Do
Banaa.org matches Sudanese survivors of atrocity with scholarship opportunities in the United States. We maintain a database of highly qualified students who are working for peace in Sudan and want to further their education. Empowered with a university degree, Banaa Scholars return to Sudan with the technical skills necessary to cooperatively address complex political, environmental and economic causes of war. In the United States, Banaa.org works with college students, faculty and administrators to create new scholarship opportunities. Banaa staff based at GW University support passionate volunteers who want to bring a Sudanese peacemaker to their university.
For more information about us, please visit Banaa.org.
****The living stipend is designed to support scholars' basic needs such as the cost of hygeine products and toiletries, laundry detergent and machine usage, and a meal plan for summer and winter break. Your donation can help us provide so much more!
