Description and results


This project aims to complement Canada’s existing humanitarian relief efforts for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Iraq, thereby leveraging greater impact of Canada’s response to the crisis. The project also strengthens Iraq’s resilience to withstand the impact of the current and future crises by building the capacity of local authorities, community groups, local non-profit organizations, and individuals, through training and technical assistance. The project provides essential education and protection services to children of host and camp communities that integrate water, sanitation and hygiene activities. These services increase access and quality to formal and non-formal education, psychosocial support, child protection and case management while ensuring children and their families have access to water sanitation and hygiene facilities in schools, child friendly spaces and community centres.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved learning environments for children in camps of internally-displaced persons (IDPs) and host communities; (2) girls and boys are protected from abuse, violence, exploitation and neglect in IDP camps and host communities; and (3) children and families benefit from safe water, improved sanitation and hygiene in IDP camps and host communities.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of July 2016 include: (1) a design, the project had a target of reaching 18,220 individuals, upon the end of activities, it had reached 25,663 individuals, 19,166 children (9,766 boys, 9,400 girls) including 6,497 adults (3,227 men and 3,270 women); (2) access to, and quality of, formal and non-formal education in the target communities had increased, psychosocial well-being and protection of children in Garmawa and Shariya camps and War City non-camp setting had been improved, while the personal hygiene knowledge, attitudes and practices of target children had been enhanced through application of Children's Hygiene and Sanitation Training (CHAST) methodology; and (3) the project successfully mainstreamed gender equality through the implementation of a Gender Equality Action Plan and equity promotion, and attempted also to mainstream environmental protection.
