Hi Chiome! We are looking forward to making a comtributon.

Hi Shane. Thanks for commenting and below are some first thoughts on your questions and comments. On the tablets to Sudan front: We have two very important partners in Sudan: Ahfad University for Women and the Ministry of Education. They have both supported the importation of tablets and Ahfad University loads all the software, including regular updates, on the tablets. Ahfad University is now working with the Ministry of Education to train their staff to upload updates as well. It is a team effort. The types of collaborations we are looking for include: other INGOs, local NGOs and multilateral agencies working on non-formal education programming in camps and host communities; educationalists who understand EdTech; developing engaging content and who work really well with others (children; ministries, UN agencies, etc); technical evaluators who will give us vital feedback; education in emergency agencies who want to take become part of our journey; refugees and IDP who want to work with us to develop appropriate materials and approaches .. and, of course; responsive donors who believe in helping us scale up in Sudan and elsewhere. We cannot do it ourselves and nor do we think we should. With so many refugee children out of school globally, working together is the only way.
