British Entrepreneur Proposes Sudan Program to Projects Abroad

James Caan, a British business man who features on the BBC's popular television program The Dragon's Den (a business-themed reality TV show) - has asked Projects Abroad to set up a teaching and care program in Sudan. He believes that this, along with Projects Abroad's other programs in the Muslim countries of Senegal and Morocco, will help to overcome the ill-feeling generated by the imprisonment in Sudan of English teacher, Gillian Gibbons, for allowing her class to name a teddy bear "Mohammed".

Peter Slowe, Director of Projects Abroad who commented on the Gillian Gibbons case on BBC and Sky TV, says "We think this is a great idea. Sudan is a wonderful country for volunteers if their volunteering is organized properly. We hope to have the basis for this new program set up early in the New Year - please keep watching our website for news!"

As Peter stressed in his TV interviews, working overseas within an organization that can provide full-scale briefing and preparation, advice on local culture and the support of local staff, can avoid the type of misunderstandings that happened in the Gillian Gibbons case.
