History: Wilfag School was established in 2001 to provide kindergarten, elementary, and adult education to the communities in Kutum locality in North Darfur. The school has five classrooms that are built from local materials. Wilfag was part of a cluster of other Kutum locality schools that were attacked and destroyed during the conflict. DPDO hopes to be able to rebuild a permanent structure for Wilfag School over the next year in order to protect students from harsh weather conditions. Due to a lack of funding from the Sudanese government, neighboring schools in the Wilfag area are closing. Wilfag has therefore accepted a large influx of students from other schools. Due to the increase in student enrollment, Wilfag needs to hire at least two additional teachers, and needs funding for an additional water barrel.
