We Build Micro-Villages In partnership with the refugees in our care, we develop micro-villages that meet their physical needs first. By keeping our villages small—in the range of 20 homes and 100-150 people—we maintain the familiar village social structure with which most refugees are familiar. This greatly minimizes the difficulties of transition and gives them the strong sense of community during displacement—which is often lost in larger refugee camps.
Community Center Building a house is one thing, but providing a place of refuge is quite another. Our 8,000 square footmultipurpose facility, complete with a soccer field, provides both informal and formal educational programs for refugees and locals in Soran. We offer youth activities, adult vocational training, and English and Arabic classes.
— Nuroj School When refugees move in to their homes, the first question the families ask us is, "How can we get education for our children?" These families are desperate to provide for their children's futures, and we could not be more happy to help them through our Love Does school.
— Trauma Counseling We are implementing a groundbreaking trauma care program that offers psycho-social support to families living in our micro-villages. All of the families in our micro-villages have experienced life-transforming growth in the midst of their tragic circumstances.
— Hospital Our Iraqi government approved 16,000 square foot school run by local staff and teachers is about to commence its second school year educating x? refugee children from our villages. These kids won't miss a beat during displacement! The three story facility has capacity to educate up to 600 refugee students, and the potential to double in classroom size should there be need to build onto the facility.
Empowering refugees with autonomy and the tools to make the most of their time during displacement creates genuine communities of hope.
