Recently, a friend of me informed me about Khartoum International Community School (KICS), a private international school in Khartoum.
Out of curiousity , I googled it. I mean if one day I lived in that crazy confusing country, I want my kids to have a Western or international education. Apparently, the staff of KICS are "westerns" and it's really hard to get a job there if you are Sudanese ( is it a rumour?).
I did manage to find their website and again ..out of curiousity.. I glanced at the tuition sheet only once. I told my mum the huge number and we sat there mentally converting it to US dollars.
Nursery School - about 8,000 US dollars
High School- 15- 17,000 US dollars.
No wonder most of the students are ehm ehm white.
what da hell ?! The overwhelming majority can't afford to pay 17,000 US dollars for high school education!!!!
