Darfur on Sportscenter

Sunday’s 11pm EST edition of ESPN’s Sportscenter will feature a story about NBA star Tracy McGrady and the Darfur Dream Team’s Sister Schools Program – which links US middle schools, high schools, and colleges with schools in Darfur’s refugee camps.

The Darfur Dream Team was formed after McGrady returned from a visit to the refugee camps in Darfur. It’s a coalition of advocacy organizations, including The Enough Project, and several NBA players, such as Derek Fisher and Baron Davis.

The two main objectives of the program include (1) to provide a quality education to every refugee child from Darfur and (2) to develop connections between students from Darfur and the US and promote mutual understanding.

Find out how you can get involved.
