Our Family Center is located in the Northern Kurdish region of Iraq. Construction of the Center began in 2004 and opened in 2007. Thousands of Kurdish adults, youth and children have benefitted from programs over the years. Specifically, some of our most successful and popular programs include, free dental assistance to surrounding schools, vocational tailoring and dressmaking, computer classes with instruction in Windows, Office and internet, English as a second language, and more recently art, artisan crochet, violin and keyboard with accompanying music theory. Additionally, one very important aspect of the Center is its vital contribution as the only ‘green’ recreational family area with playground equipment in this community of over 10,000 inhabitants.
