All Project Activities in Sudan Suspended

After the worrying recent developments, the German Foreign Ministry is suspending its project activities in the Sudan. The ministry has made clear that the ongoing attempted military coup undermines the peaceful efforts of the Sudanese people for democracy and threatens the security and stability of the country. This also affects our current efforts to train UN Youth Delegates and to foster participatory processes and a vocal civil society in the country. Therefore, our current project is postponed until further notice. We support this decision because - after a whole generation of waiting and hoping- the people of Sudan finally deserve a peaceful transition from dictatorship towards democracy.
