This Nineveh SEED project restores a sweet shop for Tel Kaif, northern Iraq. The project was made possible by donations to American FRRME in the US. May we thank all of you who donate in the US to make livelihood projects like this one a reality. Together we are impacting so many people and changing the future for these communities.
Abdulrahman Isaac, our Iraq programme manager and Naeel, our Field Monitoring Officer - both based in northern Iraq - planned and implemented the project earlier this summer alongside implementation partners Friends of Youth Forum.
Abdulrahman explains: “Before the ISIS conflict, there were several sweet shops in the town, but after the liberation of the town there were no such shops anymore."
The project has set up a wonderful bakery with great ice cream, giving a social meeting place for families with children in not just Tel Kaif, but the surrounding area too. He continues:
"Furthermore, and very importantly, it is providing jobs for at least 7 local young people; vulnerable Christian youths with no other source of employment. The Nineveh SEED programme is all about providing such livelihoods”.
Will you partner with us in restoring hope and a sustainable future?
Providing jobs is so important in enabling Christian and other communities to return to their homeland. Tel Kaif was on the front line of the battle with ISIS for three years and is just 11 miles from Mosul.
We carefully identify, scope and execute sustainable projects like this one that help people regain their livelihoods. Through Nineveh SEED we create jobs, provide community benefit and ultimately, encourage displaced people to return. Partner with us today and create a new tomorrow for these people:
Help create a new tomorrow for these people
