Built a classroom in an elementary school

Projects: Built a classroom in an elementary school

One of the problems that children face in Iraq is education, especially children who live in poverty. Another problem of education is the lack of schools, which leads to an increase in the number of students per school.

At the beginning of the academic year of 2019, one of the elementary schools in Basra Province, which has many orphaned and poor children, was suffering from a lack of classrooms. The second-grade classes had 78 students each, which of course, is very large per class. The school’s administration asked donors to help them build a new class for second-grade students.

Iraqi Children’s Hope collected donations from businesses and individuals to build the classroom. We were able to build two classrooms in the school instead of one to reduce the large number of students in the class.
