 In 2003, JEN started its support activities based in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad. In the same year, we began providing educational support. After 2009, we expanded our activity areas to Kirkuk in the north and Anbar in the east, restoring 251 schools in the six provinces.

 After the Iraq War, people were living in fear of terrorism and conflict every day as political instability persisted. Children were particularly vulnerable, so JEN restored destroyed schools to secure safe places for the children and encouraged them to return to school. Our restoration of 251 schools allowed 131,621 children to attend school again, which also contributed to improving the capacity of teachers and the Ministry of Education in Iraq. Parents have been able to restore hygienic and safe livelihoods for their households.

 In March 2018, JEN ended this 15 year project. We would like to thank you for your warm support for this project.

 After 2014, JEN also established its activity base in the Kurdistan Autonomous Region in the north. We have been carrying out emergency support activities such as supplying water, restoring water supply facilities and schools, distributing goods, and operating a refugee camp for people who have fled from armed groups. In the future, we will be based in Duhok and continue to support people who have returned to areas liberated from armed groups in the northern Nineveh Province where damage was most severe.

 In Iraq, many people are still unable to recover from the conflict. We would like to thank you for your continued support.
