The Darfur Conflict

The Darfur Conflict

In 2003, the Sudanese Government and its proxy militia launched a violent and brutal ethnic cleansing campaign against unarmed civilians. More than 400,000 people died from the ensuing violence, disease, or malnutrition. Violence continues in Darfur. The original conflict forced survivors to flee to refugee camps or different countries.

There are 12 refugee camps in Chad with populations ranging from 13,000 to 29,000 inhabitants per camp. Women and children comprise 85% of camp populations. The Darfur Women Network, Inc. targets the Touloum Refugee Camp. Touloum Camp’s population is 29,000 people. They lack basic necessities for survival and face unsafe circumstances regularly.

We work to empower displaced women and vulnerable families to build peaceful and sustainable livelihood through education, social change and resiliency.
