Education and Training in Kurdistan

Escaped Esidian children can go to school again.

Udo Stolte reports: “During my first visit to the small Esiden camps, parents and a teacher had designed a temporary tent school, which impressed me. One year later I met the children in the morning playing. When I asked them why they were not in school, they said their teacher had gone to Germany”.

Regular schools were too far away. No money for transportation, no school materials, no school lessons!

With the help of a partner organization and private donations, we have been able to provide schooling for these 40 to 50 children. In the video they say thank you.

Helen: “My Dream: Child Centre in Baadre Camp

In the north of the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan in northern Iraq we find several large camps with fled Esids. In one, Helen and other women have created a little paradise: Happy children between the ages of 4 and 15 play, sing, dance, laugh and work with exciting teaching material based on the Montessori pedagogy.

The young teachers are highly motivated and the children are enthusiastic. It is a lot of fun to watch them. It started with 30 children a few years ago, now the number has grown to 120.

You can hardly see what these children have been through. They are orphans, victims of the IS. Some of them have experienced terrible things.
