An interactive awareness and educational event that brings attention to the ongoing genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and gives individuals the opportunity to discover their ability and power to make a difference.
This traveling refugee camp raises awareness and examines Sudan’s Darfur region and its humanitarian crisis – genocide – by placing it in an historical context with Armenia, the Holocaust, Cambodia, and Rwanda. Camp Darfur empowers communities to raise their voices and take action for the individuals of Darfur.
WHERE HAS CAMP DARFUR BEEN?
Hosting Camp Darfur
Camp Darfur creates the space for you and your group to raise awareness, take action, and get the rest of your community involved in human rights. It offers your group the opportunity to INTERACT with the community of Darfur! We encourage students to learn about each genocide represented and to provide a host at each tent to peer educate. We would like you and your group to take the opportunity of having Camp Darfur on campus to create an event that will reach your target audience. You can have music playing to attract those passing by, offer samples of refugee food, sign teachers or professors up to visit the Camp with their classes, or anything else you can think of. Be creative! Together with Camp Darfur, your program, events, and information will help make the overall event interactive. We also encourage hosts to have activities available that allow the audience to take immediate action in helping the people of Darfur.
