Introduction / History

Like the Gaaliin people, the Kawahia are also part of the Sudanese Arab ethnic group, which is possibly the largest in the north and central regions of Sudan.

Arabs find their origins in the ancient Bedouins of Saudi Arabia, but today the Sudanese Arabs primarily dwell in Sudan and Egypt, with smaller groups in other North African and Middle Eastern countries.


What are Their Lives Like?

Kawahia are African in many respects; however, they still retain distinct aspects of their Arab culturally, such as loyalty, hospitality, and strict codes of honor.

Sudanese Arabs also retain characteristics of Arab family and societal life, such as the distinct roles of males and females. Males are highly valued, and women occupy a subservient role beneath the men. However, in Sudanese Arab culture, women enjoy more freedom and liberty than women in many Arab societies around the world.


Prayer Points

* Pray for the message of Jesus to come to the Kawahia in a way that connects with their cultural values of loyalty and honor.
* Pray that the Kawahia will not be left without a witness any longer, and that long-term workers will be raised up to live among them.
