Schools in Kabkabiya 
11 December 2012. Kabkabiya: Students taking classes in one of the old rooms in poor conditions of the Al Salam Basic School for Girls in Kabkabiya, North Darfur. The UNAMID Rwandan Battalion 31 built 2 new classes for the center as a Quick Impact Project in 2011.

This school has over 2,000 students (mostly residents in camps for Internally Displaced Persons). Many students don't have proper conditions to take classes yet and more concrete buildings are needed. Most of the classes are currently attended by over 100 students each and there is no chairs and tables for everyone.
