DUBAI: Dubai Cares, part of Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, announced on Tuesday at the 14th edition of the Dubai International Humanitarian Aid & Development Conference and Exhibition (DIHAD 2017), the launch of a Dhs3.8 million ($1,026,375) programme in partnership with Unicef aimed at easing the pressure on the fractured education system in Iraqi Kurdistan. The programme, titled “Access to Quality Education for Internally Displaced, Refugee, Host-Communities, and Other Vulnerable Children”, is in line with Dubai Cares’ Education in Emergencies strategy, designed to provide children affected by conflict and natural disasters with access to safe and predictable learning opportunities that teach them both the academic and socio-emotional skills they need to learn and thrive.

Within the framework of this programme, two 13-classroom schools will be constructed in the governorates of Erbil and Sulaymaniyah. They will incorporate gender-segregated privy facilities and water supply systems. The schools are expected to help alleviate the pressure currently placed upon the region’s severely fractured education system. Upon the completion of the schools, at least 1,365 internally displaced persons (IDPs), refugees, and other vulnerable children will have access to a conducive learning environment in which to acquire a good quality basic education.
