The Sudan Volunteer Programme
The Sudan Volunteer Programme, a UK registered charity, liaises with the Sudanese Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to place native English speakers in universities and schools all over Sudan. Now in its 17th year SVP is one of the few ways for foreigners to experience first-hand an amazingly hospitable and generous people. Volunteers receive accommodation and a small stipend from the university in exchange for their efforts. SVP arranges residency visas for volunteers. SVP charges no application fees and volunteers must pay for their own travel to Sudan. Minimum period of volunteering is six months. Volunteering with SVP is a useful stepping-stone for careers in international development and related fields. SVP is not for suitable for the casual traveller.
