In October 2021, the Learning Passport, a digital initiative that enables continuous access to quality, inclusive and gamified education was launched in Sudan by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Telecommunications and Digital Transformation in collaboration with UNICEF. Powered by Microsoft, the e-Learning platform is available online as well as offline* in intermittent or no connectivity areas where children need it the most. The Learning Passport equips students with the necessary tools to support their learning whether in schools, at home during lockdowns or abroad.
With support from UNICEF, the Ministry of Education in Sudan has digitized the national curricula for grades 1 through 8, including intermediate, which are now available in their entirety on the Learning Passport, making them accessible to students in Sudanese schools, even while abroad. A potential 3.6 million out-of-school children in Sudan could also benefit from the Learning Passport.
Today, the Learning Passport is available as both a web and mobile app for children to receive continuous access to education. It is constantly updated with the latest versions of the Sudanese national curricula and features engaging and interactive tools developed by UNICEF that make learning fun.

The Learning Passport comes into operation in Sudan after two years of massive disruptions to the educational system due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the last two years, 8.1 million students across Sudan were affected by shutdowns to schools and universities. Sudan has an estimated 3.6 million out-of-school children, the highest figure in the Middle East and North Africa Region.
Bridging the learning gap that the COVID-19 pandemic has created or exacerbated across the globe, including in Sudan, is crucial. The Learning Passport is part of UNICEF’s broader efforts to accelerate and improve access to quality education for every child.
