This country are undergoing great challenges given the terrorist threat and civil wars. Education & humanitarian aid are still our focus here.
The epicenter of ISIS destruction in Iraq is Mt. Sinjar is where the infamous massacre happened in August 2014. This is the local school building destroyed by ISIS, which the Mayor offered us to fix and begin classes. However, the reconstruction of this school is a major undertaking. Therefore, we are investing in durable mock classroom tents as shown. One reason that many NGOs and schools are NOT building in Sinjar is due to the close proximity which ISIS militias are to this area of impact but we believe that the most powerful way to resist radical Islamic terrorism is to continue living life despite the fear of injustice and hate. With the help of Somerset Foundation, school will soon be the new reality for many kids.
