JEN has been supporting self-reliance of the people in Iraq since 2003.
We have been focusing on repair the "educational envyroyment" for children to study with safe envyroyment, who will contribute the country near future. Last couple of years, JEN managed to expand the operation to 5 provinces.
A new project (Improvement of Educational Environment and Hygiene Awareness in Primary/Secondary Schools in the Middle and Northern Parts of Iraq (Third Phase)) has started in Dec 2012, with the kind support of your warm donation and a fund from Japan's fuMinistry of Foreign affairs. This project is as same as the last one, for school rehabilitation and hygiene promotion at 10 schools that spread in 5 governorates; Baghdad, Anbar, Babil, Kirkuk, and Diyala which is estimated to benefit 4,500 students and 350 of families, residents of the area and teachers, with goals in health promotion through repairing of hygiene facilities in the schools and providing hygiene training for the students, so that they can maintain their health and keep the comfortable environment to continue their education and learn proper hygiene habits to live healthier life.
JEN believe that students not only will be able to use latrines and wash hands in schools when ever they want, instead of going back to home during school hours, but avoid taking risks of injure from broken windows or damaged electric equipment in the classrooms.
