Learning with fun
How non-formal education is transforming the way children learn in Iraq
In the area of Hasansham north of Iraq, there are three camps with more than 19,000 families living in very difficult conditions during this hot season of the year.
In a partnership with TDH Organization, UNICEF recently opened an informal education center to help children learn languages gain skills and have fun
I love to come here every day, I have my friends and I love my teachers too
At this center, children are taught, Arabic and English, numbers, and counting.
These kids have a very difficult life, in this center, they can feel like they’re really kids again
I like the games a lot and I love to eat popcorn, said 5 years old Zina.
This project is for children who are out of school. It’s a way to prepare them for reentering school, says Hema Vinod, an Education Specialist with UNICEF Iraq.
With generous support from the German government, these centers received over 600 boys and girls every day.
All the children here need support, they have gone through exceptional circumstances that they can’t easily forget, so the activities help to make their lives better and better. said Ammar Hassan, a TDH program director.
This year, as the world celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, we are calling on more impactful public to ensure that every child exercises his or her right to education, protection and health.
