Fighting against corporal punishment - Story of success

After three years in working with different teaching staff and ministry of education in Khartoum, finally the ministry of education in Khartoum state announced (decision no 10 for year 2010, which incriminated corporal punishment in primary schools ).but in higher secondary schools and rest of states still allowed. But we are so pleased with that success, because we were fighting against the fundamentalists and their poor old vision and wrong interpretations for Islam. And we finished training of trainees in October and now we have trained and more than 800 teachers in alternatives of corporal punishment in schools. more over, the minister of education wrote the introduction of our coming manual in alternatives, and these issues were tackling in good way through media, (tv,newspapers,radios). And we celebrate the graduation with the presence of media and save the children Sweden organization and different NGos, and the ambassador of the Swedish embassy and minister of education-Khartoum state and different child forums and the children ask the minister to write the introduction. We were so happy and want to share that with you. Please see the attached photos. This work done with incorporation between child rights institute and save the children Sweden - Sudan .

Congratulations!!!

Dear Nahid,

Congratulations on this amazing achievement! I know that this means a lot for the people of Sudan and for creating positive change in the education system. This news makes me so happy - and such a wonderful cause to celebrate. Especially for a country and people who have not had a lot to celebrate recently. Speaking with our mutual friend Halima about the current situation in Sudan, it has left me searching for signs of hope. And this is a wonderful sign of hope - so thank you for your courage, your determination, your leadership and for sharing this amazing success with the PulseWire community!

In friendship and solidarity,
Jade

Wow! That's real amazing Nahid!

Really, that's a very necessary endeavor! There's a growing apprehension on the rise of fundamentalism throughout the globe, not only in Islam, but also in Christianity! And your battle-cry, "Save the Children", is very fitting! We need to save the future and the children are the vanguards of their own generation. Congratulations, sister! You've done what is timely and really relevant! All the best...

Always,
Emie Zozobrado

That's right, Nahid!

Yes, of course, sister! Challenges are meant to make us stronger and better! It happens all the time, but once we take the cudgels for the struggle and stand up for what we believe is right, we know our toils will not be in vain! My salute to your courage and faith!
