We run events throughout the year, directed at a variety of audiences – from the Sudanese community to decision-makers, with the aim of raising awareness about human rights abuses in Sudan and the plight of those who make it to the UK.

We find film a great educational and inspirational tool, and have arranged screenings of films like Watchers of the Sky, or The Heart of Nuba. We also think creatively about how to engage people in new ways, for instance using our drawings to powerful effect, arranging for attendees to use virtual reality headsets to get a sense of life in Sudan, organising for people on the ground to Skype in and speak directly to audiences, using photography, asking individuals to provide testimony where appropriate, or having actors read aloud powerful pieces of testimony where individuals are unable to do this themselves. We are always thinking of new ways to bring the issues to life and welcome suggestions

We also ourselves attend events and conferences on Sudan or relevant topics, providing a strong showing of support to counteract the sometimes dangerous denials of Sudanese Embassy officials who attend.

One of these is the Play2Remember London football tournament we run alongside Football for Hope, Peace and Unity, a group we collaborate with on atrocity prevention.

This brings together survivors of genocide and mass atrocities, as well as those who work to support them, in a spirit of hope, reconciliation and integration through sport. The event usually coincides with the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, as well as falling during April, which is the month of Genocide Awareness & Prevention.[/mpc_testimonial]
