sudan volunteer programme
Sudan Volunteer Programme (SVP) is a London and Khartoum based charitable organisation sending graduates and near-graduates to Sudan to teach English at public higher education institutions around the country.
Since its establishment in 1997, SVP has placed hundreds of volunteer teachers in Sudan. Through their efforts, we aim to raise the standard of English amongst ordinary Sudanese, who increasingly need it to access jobs allowing a reasonable standard of living but lack opportunities to develop key skills such as speaking and listening.
We are more than simply an educational organisation: SVP also aims to foster positive cross-cultural communication in a complex and fascinating country that is much misunderstood globally.
