According to the UN, 70% of internally displaced children in Iraq have now missed at least one year of school. The longer these children are out of the education system, the harder it is to get back in. With this in mind, we are supporting a school in Harsham camp north of Erbil. The school educates 30 girls (all Sunni Arab).
The current intake of girls are aged between 11 -14. The Iraqi Ministry of Education provides the curriculum, and we provide the stationary and text books. We also provide the school with food and contribute towards the upkeep of the buildings. In the future, funds permitting, we would like to provide a room for the teaching staff.
