It is concluded that introduce invaluable help in educational field, building classes and facilities. However, they also face financial restraining because governmental efforts in improving facilities are minimized. With the increasing loads of children vying to join education, lack of books and writing materials, impoverished and destitute parents, they cannot pay the small fees required of them. Many children leave education and search for working opportunities to support their families. It is basically required from the government to step in and provide more funds to education. The results data of the Jebel Aulia camp is not different from hundreds spread all over Sudan. The country is faced with increasing numbers of children diverted from education to juvenile works or becoming social outsiders with all the expected consequences.
