Education activities

We find education as an essential tool to rebuild and recover communities from the ravages of genocide and displacement.

We find education as an essential tool to rebuild and recover communities from the ravages of genocide and displacement. Apart from continuous English classes for young people we also arrange workshops in collaboration with other organisations as well as volunteer teachers from all over the world, in subjects from painting to computer programming. The classes and workshops usually take place in our field centre at the Bajed Kandala camp for internally displaced people.

 Many Yezidis never had the chance to learn to read and write. Poverty, isolation, persecution or traditional gender roles got in their way. In 2020 we launched an adult literacy program based on the “empowerment group” method with the assistance of the Swedish educational organization ALEF. Read more about it here.
