Darfur Rehabilitation Project (DRP) was founded by a group of Darfurians living in the U.S., and deeply concerned about the human rights tragedy occurring in their homeland in western Sudan. DRP is working to unify the voices of Darfurians everywhere and bring increased international attention to bear on the situation there. DRP is working to achieve conflict resolution and reconciliation among the ethnic groups in Darfur. DRP fosters the development of democratic institutions and respect for human rights.
DRP members travel the U.S. to inform the public and bear witness to the current genocide, rape and displacement of their families and compatriots. DRP seeks justice for victims of human rights abuses through its Darfur Victims™ Project (DVP). DRP Board Members are skilled in conflict resolution and have actively brokered, since 2004, Darfur-Darfur Dialogues that help to sow the seeds of peace and prepare for the long-term rehabilitation of the Darfur region.
Considered knowledgeable in the history of Sudan and as eyewitnesses to the current genocide, DRP is regarded as a credible resource by all parties working to bring peace to the region. DRP works towards the day when a peaceful and secure Darfur will bring prosperity to all of its inhabitants.

How much longer
can we remain
For five years a genocide has been
occurring in our homeland, Darfur. For
five years we have born witness to the
killing of hundreds of thousands of
innocent civilians, mostly our woman,
children and elderly. We have heard of
the raping and the maiming and seen the
unforgettable images of wholesale
destruction as our land, livestock, our
schools and beloved villages are burned
to the ground. We have heard the
desperate cries of our people and the
families we have left behind and at
Darfur Rehabilitation Project we have
worked to make these cries heard by the
world. We have prayed that the world
But five years later, despite the
tireless work of many, the geopolitical
response is silence.
How much longer can the world remain
silent in the face of such inhumanity?
Soon there will be nothing left of
Darfur, no villages and no survivors.
Darfur Rehabilitation Project seeks to
end the genocide through peaceful means.
We work to restore security to the
region so that when peace is achieved,
rehabilitation can take place. But time
is running out for Darfur. Five years of
war is an eternity and for many of the
young the nightmare of life in the camps
is the only life they have ever known. I
appeal to you as friends and citizens of
the world to stand up with us today
to help put an end to the Darfur
genocide. For those of you who have
already stepped forward to help we want
to share our profound gratitude and
appreciation for all your efforts. But
there is much work to be done. This web
site will begin to tell you what you can
do to help. Reach out to us at DRP and
together we will end the silence.
