Event description

Description

About the event: Having run an English Language homestay company for several years, Janet was surprised to get a call inviting her to advise on a language school project in Sudan. She was even more surprised to learn a few weeks later that the investors had found a building and wanted her to be a Director!


What followed was a two-year adventure, coping with the obvious cultural differences of a patriarchal, Sharia state as a woman, and indeed as a woman from another country. Over the course of the next two years, she would make waves, and become as much part of the brand as the school itself.


The book that accompanies this talk is the story of a family's last project together, but it is also a story of triumph under unique circumstances. It is the story of The Winner School.

Who is it for: This event is part of a Social and Political Science Africa and the World module but is open to any other interested staff, students and visitors to attend.
