Founded in 2006, American Care and Education for Sudan vision is to generate projects and programs that serve two million residents among 49 million populated country emerged into the civil war due to unbalanced of rights of citizens caused by racial, religious, regional, and resources. The civil war in the Sudan has been routinely characterized as a conflict between Muslims and Christians, Arabs and Africans, or North and South. Religion, ethnicity, and regional issues were the key factors which shaped the two sides in the early days of the conflict, but in the latest bout of fighting which has raged since 1983, the lines are drawn as much along economic lines as ethno- religious ones. Worsening ecological problems in the region, scarcity of resources, and the drought of the 1980s exacerbated the conflict, and has become one of the central issues preventing resolution of it. This country has struggled under the weight of this war for 23 years, with over a million people killed and 4 million refugees displaced. This conflict has many causes and many consequences. Unfortunately, the consequences exacerbate the underlying causes and make settlement even more difficult. The flow of the displaced into the cities continued, though then this flow consists of refugees from the south rather than displaced farmers and nomads. The drought continues and in order to survive, Sudanese farmers continue their harsh treatment of the land and southward progression in search of arable land, a practice that can only make a bad situation much worse. Today the peace of no war is a little achieved but the suffering of people is the presence war of starvation, lack of education, and lack of health needs is still growing worse at large.
