The new Greater Change Community Center is inside a refugee and IDP (Internally Displaced People) camp in northern Iraq. We had a lot of meetings over the last weeks with the donor, camp manager and our lawyer working on governmental approvals. Now we officially have the keys for the Center! It is a 6 trailer facility and includes the space for up to 10 classrooms, kitchen and even a playground with a covering for the hot summers! This is all located inside the camp with direct access to the most vulnerable refugees.
The programs that the camp residents need the most are: Preschool, photography and art therapy classes for children and skills based classes for teens including English, and health and nutrition. Here are some photos of our Community Center:
