  • School Library
  • The School Milk Program
  • The SUTRAC Apprenticeship Program
  • Al-Awwal: Rewarding Excellence

As DAL Group CSR believes that education is essential for human progress, societal development and the creation of a healthy economic environment. The School Library Initiative was started in 2012, by cooperating with Ministry of Education and associated entities and NGOs in distributing dozens of books libraries in Khartoum’s schools.

While supporting a number of schools can benefit the community, more must be done for sustainable development and long-term impact. For this reason, DAL CSR encouraged structuring a group that includes the federal and state ministries of education, the National Library, Alfaisal Cultural Centre, the Sudanese Association for Libraries and Information and Iqraa Organization to form The Support and Development of School Library Network.

The aim of this network is to promote libraries in Sudanese schools, and to work with the Ministry of Education to regulate a law that obligates public and private sector schools to offer a library class, while encouraging NGOs and the private sector to support the supply of books.

The School Milk Program (SMP) is one of the important links in the DAL Dairy Value Chain; beginning in 2011 in partnership with the Khartoum State-Ministry of Education and Tetrapak, providing 16,000 underprivileged students in the greater Khartoum area with free daily packs of milk.

The SMP aims to alleviate malnutrition, increase students’ overall wellbeing, raise health awareness, and increase school attendance and is all about results. It is clear the difference a pack of milk can make, from full attendance levels to football victories. This is the drive at the heart of SMP.

A separate academic evaluation showed that, across the board, the program has made a big difference.  In some schools absence dropped from 60% to zero. Academic achievement reached 68.8% from zero. Sick reports reduced by half. The milk gave school children more energy; restored capabilities to learn, making the most of their time in the classroom; and gave them an improved chance at success.  The SMP is our contribution to a stronger nation, built by healthy, intelligent young minds and bodies. It is also an excellent demonstration of the power of Public Private Partnerships.

The Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 and in 2006 witnessed a structured approach in accommodating batches of fresh graduates from Bsc and Diploma levels.  This approach is based on the belief in group learning: the students stay in the same facility for a month and are trained together, learning and socializing equally- over 600 apprentices have been trained since then!

Applicants for training, undergo a number of Aptitude Tests, then short listing the best candidates. The trainees are then rotated to the various workshop sections and evaluated at the end of the program. The evaluations are prepared jointly by the workshop supervisors & the training center personnel and the candidates are awarded training certificates upon the successful completion of their training periods.

This practice is executed quarterly and all trainees receive allowances to cover their shared accommodation & meal costs. All these efforts are done in commitment to SUTRAC’s corporate responsibility and are aimed to expose young graduates to best industry standards to increase their employment chances and contribute to the well-being of the economy.

Another phase of the Apprenticeship Program is the selection of the Program graduates for recruitment within SUTRAC. Graduates trainees that have the potential are then further interviewed and assessed for regular jobs as Service Engineers.

The aim of this network is to promote libraries in Sudanese schools, and to work with the Ministry of Education to regulate a law that obligates public and private sector schools to offer a library class, while encouraging NGOs and the private sector to support the supply of books.

For five consecutive years, Sudan’s top high school graduates – from the academic, trade, industrial and female studies sectors undergo an extensive academic course in English language studies, and cultural and educational programmes.

The programme is part of the ‘Al Awwal honours the first’ initiative, and takes after the name of Sayga’s high performance all-purpose flour brand. The Al Awwal initiative rewards the top achieving students in Sudan’s high school diploma. The initiative instils a sense of competition in high schools and aims to expose top achieving students to different cultures and communications at an early age, and enhance students’ diplomatic skills while sharing and reflecting their own Sudanese culture with foreigners.
