Description

The Iraq Foundation (IF) was incorporated at a non-profit, 501(c)3 corporation in the U.S. in 1991, and has worked exclusively in Iraq since 2003 as a registered NGO. In 2017 IF incorporated a local affiliate, The Iraq Foundation for Democracy and Human Rights Reinforcement. IF has been working with Internally Displaced women (IDP) across Iraq since 2012, first among families displaced by the sectarian violence of 2006-2008, then with those displaced by the occupation of ISIS. IF provided legal counsel and referral, assistance with documentation, and life-skills education; IF built vocational skills and provided micro-grants to help with livelihood. Since the start of 2017, IF has been working with returnee and IDP women in Nenawa, Anbar, and Salaheddin, through the Empowering Returnee Women project (ERW) where IF trained returnee women in leadership and advocacy skills to be ambassadors for their communities with local authorities and civic leaders. Through individual and group meetings with community women and with local officials, in which needs were discussed and prioritized, women leaders won the trust of both groups of stakeholders, worked with local authorities to provide better services, and were thus able to improve living conditions for their communities.
