The foundation has delivered copies of Muslim holy book of Quran in Chad’s capital city, N’Djamena, and Tissi, a region where borders of Sudan and Central African Republic intersect and a big number of refugees live. The Muslims there who used to receive education by the use of wood signboards called, “Luh,” had a copy of Quran for themselves for the first time.
In Africa where people have great difficulties in having access to education, students try to learn to read and write and fundamental religious knowledge under very difficult circumstances. The Muslims who managed to establish their own education system despite all the hardships they faced continue to use the traditional education methods in the region.
The education system functions through writing and deletion of information and Quran verses on signboards. This shows under what kind of difficult circumstances African Muslims receive education. The Muslim people who have difficulty in having access to notebooks and pens still do not go to missionary schools and use their own education system despite all the difficulties they face.
IHH also delivered Quran copies to the people in Sudan-Darfur, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia and Somalia who experience serious problems in education due to financial difficulties.
