About Darfur Dream Team

The Darfur Dream Team is a dynamic partnership of organizations and professional basketball players working together on the Sister Schools Program, an initiative linking American middle schools, high schools and universities with schools in 12 Darfuri refugee camps in eastern Chad.

Mission: (1) Provide a quality education to every refugee child from Darfur; and, (2) Develop personal connections between students from Darfur and the United States that promote mutual understanding.

The Darfur Dream Team was started following NBA star Tracy McGrady’s trip to the Darfuri refugee camps. After spending days hearing the harrowing stories of young Darfuris and of their incredible thirst for a better education, he decided to act and the Darfur Dream Team Sister Schools Program was born.
