Emma’s Literacy Course commenced on the 17 April, 2018 in Dawoodiya Camp for a group of displaced women and will last for twenty days. Access to education is a fundamental right and it is crucial in restoring confidence for those women who lost everything.
Education plays a major role in ensuring poverty reduction and empowering individuals who are able to contribute positively to their communities. Emma has developed an Educational Programme targeting IDPs and refugee communities in the Kurdistan Region.
The programme aims at increasing access to education and employment opportunities for vulnerable communities in rural and poor urban areas, specifically women and youth.
Emma also supports national institutions and community-based organizations in delivering quality literacy courses and life skills training for IDPs and refugees.
