European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations
Creating new prospects for Iraqi children
In Iraq, a country scarred by conflict and civil unrest, the EU and UNICEF are working together to identify out-of-school children and adolescents, finding ways to make them learn again.
As pathways to formal education are often far from easy for children and adolescents displaced by conflict, options include enrolling them in non-formal education that is inclusive and non-discriminatory.
The partnership between the EU and UNICEF also ensures that boys, girls, men, and women in informal settlements and in camps for internally displaced people are reached with education and child protection services.
Initiatives to prevent gender-based violence are part of our joint efforts as well as providing survivors of such violence with appropriate care and support.
Meet some of the Iraqi children we are supporting together with UNICEF.
