Paragraph 1, page 29

Unequal access: There are high disparities in education between the eighteen states in Sudan.
Education is not inclusive. Disproportionate deprivations affect education of IDPs, refugee’s and
returnees, children with disabilities, and nomadic children. Displaced children, who account for 50
percent of the IDPs are vulnerable. IDPs schools are built on temporary buildings, most of the
teachers are volunteers, and approximately half have not been trained as teachers.
