Summary

JEN has been providing humanitarian assistance in Iraq since the commencement of its projects in Baghdad, 2003. JEN has subsequently expanded its target area to 5 provinces, where it continues to improve educational environments through its school rehabilitation program, which focus on activities such as renovating water supplies and conducting hygiene education workshops.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Although the new administration have attempted repeatedly to stabilize the situation, they have been unable to take drastic measures required to eradicate terrorism or solve other fundamental security problems. This unstable condition has made post-war reconstruction extremely difficult, forcing people into circumstances where there is a debilitating lack of water, electricity, and other services such as education and health.

How will this project solve this problem?

JEN's efforts in Iraq focus on its School Rehabilitation Program, which place or fix water systems, toilets, and water pipes, in collaboration with the Iraq Ministry of Education and UN agencies. We also distribute cleaning kits to students for the continued maintenance of schools after a project is completed, to provide hygienic learning environments for the children of Iraq. Currently, 19 schools are undergoing renovation, and 146 in total have received JEN's support thus far.

Potential Long Term Impact

JEN believes in practical measures dealing with immediate situations which contribute to the long-term goal of self-reliance for communities. The betterment of educational environments and heightened awareness of hygiene not only has immediate benefits, but long-reaching positive consequences for future generations.
