The people of the Nuba Mountains of Sudan have been under conflict for decades. This conflict has left the people of Nuba without many resources, including education support. Due to the nature of the conflict, access to the region is challenging. Still, the education organization, To Move Mountains (TMM), was able to conduct a rapid assessment survey in the area of conflict. The study measured literacy and numeracy levels of children 8 and 9 years old living in the conflict area.  The study also explored attendance rates among the same age group. TMM has also conducted a qualitative survey, and both will be used to support the people of Nuba to build a high-quality contextualized curriculum and teaching pedagogy.
