Tertiary education for Sudanese refugees

Resolution number: 
November 1996
  1. The conflict in the Sudan is over three decades old.
  2. Many Sudanese refugees languish in refugee camps in Kenya, Uganda and elsewhere in Africa.
  3. There is no imminent likelihood of these refugees repatriating to the Sudan.
  4. The majority of these refugees are youth with no opportunities for education past the secondary level.
  5. There is little opportunity for these youth to resettle to a third country.
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR urge the Government of Canada, through consultations with other donor countries and international agencies, to develop a fund to provide educational opportunities, at the tertiary level, to Sudanese refugees in Kenya, Uganda and elsewhere in Africa.
