JEN has been supporting self-reliance of the people in Iraq since 2003.
We have been focusing on repair the "educational environment" for children to study with safe environment, who will contribute the country near future. Last couple of years, JEN managed to expand the operation to 5 provinces.
The main issue that affects the work at school is the security situation. That’s led to some days we cannot reach the school even the contractor and the materials could not supplied at site in due time because the school was surrounded by a concrete block to prevent from the bomb explosion.
Iraq's deadliest day in last six months came on the 10th anniversary. Up to 60 people have been killed in a series of car and suicide bombings mainly in several areas in and around Iraq's capital, Baghdad.
The country remains volatile, and disputes with the autonomous Kurdistan Region over the city of Kirkuk have threatened to derail progress.
To implement our work, JEN engineer as well as the contractor received support from the headmistress assistant and she appreciated the work and did following up the work to improve the quality.
JEN also conducts hygiene trainings at school for students after providing training for teachers. Children learn the methods of protecting themselves from infectious disease. They also appreciate the hygiene materials and kits provided by JEN.
This project is being executed thanks to the support of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, all our members and contributors.
