Education during COVID-19 pandemic
Unfortunately, COVID-19 pandemic has spread also in Iraq, where the population was already heavily affected by conflicts and ISIS domination.
The official numbers in the country are close to 260,370cases (data updated to 07.09.2020) and measures have been immediately taken to limit the spread of the virus as much as possible.
Schools have been closed since February 14th but, thanks to COOPI, children were able to study at home.
In fact, COOPI provided school materials to 4,000 children and abstracts to 261 children, in order to guarantee them to complete their exams safely.
Playful activities were also offered to 1,085 children, so that children could express emotions and face the stress caused by school closures.
Despite travel restrictions, in 2020 COOPI rehabilitated 5 new schools and trained 36 teachers.Attachments:
