Name: Al Khatim Adlan Center for Enlightenment and Human Development (KACE)

Director: Albaqir Alafif

Founded: 2007

Address: Street 57, Al-Amarat, Khartoum, Sudan

Telephone: +249 183 480 510

Website:

Background:

The Registrar General of Sudan’s national and foreign organizations ordered the closure of the Center on Monday 31 December 2012.

Aiming to promote peace, democracy and diversity, the KACE has organized workshops on Darfur and South Kordofan crises, elections, and South Sudan and Abyei referendums. In 2012 the Center worked on different projects, such as violence against women and youth.

Many of its different activities are funded by foreign embassies in Khartoum, and international foundations. At the time of its closure KACE was working on a project about the reform of the school curriculum funded by the National Endowment for Democracy and another one related to the civil society participation in public affairs supported by the Open Society Institute.

Sudanese authorities did not explain why they decided to close the Center. However, the move was expected as government officials had accused KACE and other civil society groups of being linked to the opposition and working to topple the regime.
