Why do you want to build a school?
The importance of education is great but education in a conflict zone is even greater because…
• it inspires children to believe there is more to life than conflict, violence and injustice
• it stops children from joining the violence and conflict
• it reduces the risk of children joining terrorism globally
• it creates opportunities and future leaders
• it creates a future for an educated government that believes there is more to life than war
• it shows terrorists that children have a choice beyond conflict
• it helps break the ‘war’ cycle
• it teaches children to make intelligent, educated decisions
Where are you building a school?
Currently, 1.5 million displaced people and refugees reside in Kurdistan, many without shelter and basic needs. Most schools are occupied by those seeking shelter, this means many students are have no access to schools.
We would like to build a school in one of the most affected areas, Dohuk Governorate. The school will be built in a camp for those displaced. We are also aiming to renovate many schools so local children can return to school.
Rwanga Foundation will build the school. To date they have helped over 360,000 refugees and displaced people.
Why should you help?
Education in a conflict zone is an investment in everyone’s future not just the children currently living there. It stops the conflict going beyond borders. It occupies children and opens opportunities that conflict doesn’t.
This is your unique opportunity to make a difference for the future of our children and our safety.
