We are inviting applications from eligible candidates resident in Sudan for the UNHCR DAFI Scholarship Programme.

WTI is proud to work in partnership with UNHCR to implement the DAFI scholarship programme.

The highlighted area shows the current states where WTI is working in association with DFID and the Ministry of General Education to implement the Girls Education, South Sudan (GESS) project

Reflecting decades of neglect, conflict and lack of resources, educational facilities in South Sudan are amongst the poorest in the world.  In turn this leads to very low enrolment rates, especially for girls.
