Abstract:     
The study presented here depends on a field survey of refugees' camps in war strived Darfur region. The data are genuine from people and children. Besides my conclusions on impacts on education, I hereby profess that what happens on the camps generate only further economic destitute and entrenching social hatred for the Sudanese nation. I review and analyze here the reasons and causes of Darfur strive with the effects of the broad civil conflicts on education and human capital in the region. Variables implied here are central on education, which are related to the fragmentation of the previously known social cohesion. The conflict spread to all parts of the region. The prominent identified conclusion is that there is an institutional and structural interregnum that resulted in disappearing tools of governance. Field data were used to present the review and conclusions. Recurrent droughts, invisible development, struggles on land use and ownership led to flaring armed conflicts. The general services of health, water and education, though meager collapsed. Previous arrangements for the education of the nomads collapsed with the armed conflicts. Regular educational facilities deteriorated. In refugees' camps very little efforts were achieved. NGOs role in helping education with facilities, tools and funding were noticeable with less governmental efforts. The conclusions here imply that the collapse of social cohesion, continued armed conflict and expansions of refugees' camps will only hatch more violence and conflicts.
