Our group has worked really hard to present this site to the public (aka Dr. Madden's class) and to show off what we have learned. We have each researched different aspects of Sudan that combine our individual concerns, passions, talents, skills and abilities. We hope to have clarified many of the problems faced by Sudan and also to have provided creative and thoughtful insights on the conflicts and suffering that have arisen in this area, and what can be done to stop them. Please explore our individual sites with an open mind. You may be surprised at what you learn!
