Week Without Walls  (WWW)

Week Without Walls is a program offered in many international schools worldwide. It is designed to give students the experiences that will inspire them to become more internationally-minded and caring global citizens. A global citizen is someone who is aware of the wider world, cares about people and the environment, and takes action to make the world a better place. Students plan and work as teams, strengthening their teamwork for a common goal of greater good.

For Week Without Walls thirteen students from grade 5 to grade 12 visited Omdurman souq where, on day one, they rediscovered traditional medicines, interviewed traders and the ladies who weave baskets. On day two they visited the antique part of the souq and learnt much about the history of Sudan from early Nubian times throughout the colonial era. Students saw woodcarvers in action and talked to locals and traders about Omdurman and life in Sudan. Locals at the souq were excited to see the students and to share their knowledge. It was obvious that the locals are proud of their heritage and happy that the students wanted to learn about Sudan. On day three students made a video to share their experiences with other students and visitors to 六合之家APP.
