Our School, Our Home

At the beginning of 2016, the Ministry of Education of Iraq called on both the Department of Environmental Education and the Department of School Health to conduct a campaign for cleaning up schools with local governments. Letters of invitation to participate on this project were extended to related NGOs, and the campaign was entitled “Our School, Our Home”.

The Ministry of Education and schools have been paying special attention to school hygienic environment and acknowledge its importance. One of the aims of this project was to create a learning environment safe and healthy to students and teachers.

JEN offered cleaning equipments and materials to schools and contributed much to the success of this campaign.

Before the start of the campaign, we cleaned up the schools all day long together with officers from the Ministry of Education. We have received compliments from many organizations for our active participation and project implementation.
