This project aims to complement Canada’s existing humanitarian relief efforts for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Iraq, thereby leveraging greater impact of Canada’s response to the crisis. The project also strengthens Iraq’s resilience to withstand the impact of the current and future crises by building the capacity of local authorities, community groups, local non-profit organizations, and individuals, through training and technical assistance. The project provides essential education and protection services to children of host and camp communities that integrate water, sanitation and hygiene activities. These services increase access and quality to formal and non-formal education, psychosocial support, child protection and case management while ensuring children and their families have access to water sanitation and hygiene facilities in schools, child friendly spaces and community centres.
