In partnership with Love Does, our Iraqi government registered 16,000 square foot school run by local staff and teachers commenced its second school year educating 700 children from both in and around Soran as well as refugee children from our villages. All of the students attend classes five days a week, and the students from the villages are bused to and from the school. The three-story facility has the potential to double in classroom size should there be need for the facility to grow.

Last year the school and staff offered basic school only—grades one to six. In 2017, the school opened for afternoon sessions from grades nine to 12.
