The study presented here reviews activities of NGOs in Sudan by surveying and studying the activities of Save the Children of United Kingdom. Activities of NGOs in Sudan were always a controversial issue that resulted in the expulsion of many in 2009. There were also precedents of such expulsions in previous and following years. The paper discusses humanitarian work in Sudan, positive and negative sides. The case study's activities of the Save the Children efforts in Jebel Aulia Internally Displaced People, specially their efforts in education were investigated. It is concluded that introduce invaluable help in educational field, building classes and facilities. However, they also face financial restraining because governmental efforts in improving facilities are minimized. With the increasing loads of children vying to join education, lack of books and writing materials, impoverished and destitute parents, they cannot pay the small fees required of them. Many children leave education and search for working opportunities to support their families. It is basically required from the government to step in and provide more funds to education. The results data of the Jebel Aulia camp is not different from hundreds spread all over Sudan. The country is faced with increasing numbers of children diverted from education to juvenile works or becoming social outsiders with all the expected consequences.

Comments
The crises of Sudan continues since its political independence more than six decades before. It is not exaggeration to claim that it has not known peace, development and prosperity except under the British colonial rule from 1899-1956. Humanitarian crisis is a continuous and never-ending nightmare. However, during the past twenty three years that nightmare have expanded and accelerated in horrors and sufferings that befell the Sudanese nation. Displacement, is part of the phenomenon accompanied by hunger, underdevelopment and under-education. The interventions of the human relief NGO's were always a blessing for the Sudanese people. However, there were always shortcomings to fulfill their help. The following paper describes some of that where I verify here that I am the author and have the legal right to deposit it here.
