KAS and WRO Support Reconciliation in Ninawah

Workshops on Conflict Resolution and Mediator Trainings in Bashiqa

Ninawah region in Iraq has always been ethnically, culturally and religiously diverse. However, the region has suffered severely from the occupation of ISIL in 2014.

In this context, the KAS Syria/Iraq Office, together with the Women Rehabilitation Organisation (WRO), launched a ten-month program in Bashiqa, Ninawah province, which aims to enhance awareness, enforce community participation and stimulate peaceful co-existence in the region.
