Talk on Tuesday 10th by leading Sudanese ornithologist

I teach at Khartoum International Community School (KICS) and the school regularly invites outside speakers to talk to the students and wider community. Next week we are excited to have Dr Elsadig Awad Bashir giving a KICS Community Lecture entitled 'Empowering Children on Aspects of the Environment'. He worked for the Sudanese government for 15 years studying the effects of crop damage by birds. He then worked for UNDP and FAO in various countries throughout Africa and Asia, before settling in Qatar, where he is director of Qatar Birds Project, Chairman of Qatar Bird Club and coordinator of the Hima Fund which provides funds to support Important Bird Areas in the Middle East.

It is open to the general public and free of charge, but we need to know in advance who is coming. If you are interested, please send me an e-mail ( and I will you add you to the list. I will be able to send you directions to the school if needed. The school is located in the south of Khartoum near the southern end of Road 60 (Bashir El Nefeidi St.). I hope that some of you can come.
