On October 13th we signed an agreement with the French Embassy for funding of a new civic education project in Kassala State. With funding of 60,000 EUR this new project will allow SUDIA to improve its civic education curriculum which it developed under a previous UUSAID grant and tong and to train a number of civil society organizations on use of the curriculum. CSOs trained will also have access to small grants to carry out civic education activities in their communities. SUDIA will also be using this project to work with other national organizations and groups involved in civic education to ensure that training materials being used are consistent in terms of content and messaging.
