The Al-Rasid Approach

Since its formation in March 2015, the first priority of the al-Rasid Ninawa Provincial Task Force has been providing support to ease the suffering of minority women who have survived and escaped from imprisonment by ISIL. The Task Force advocated for minority SGBV survivors through meetings with government officials, demonstrations, and protests to urge the government to act and assist SGBV survivors.

Furthermore,the suffering of Yezidi women has been at the top of the agenda for the PTF’s efforts in the province. On August 12, 2015, the task force invited the General Director of Yezidi affairs, Mr. Khayri Buzani, along with the Chairman for the Ninawa Provincial Council to their meeting. The task force started the meeting by presenting a list of local community priorities. The task force members, including Mr. Khayri and Mrs. Kalawis Mohammed, presented facts about Yezidi women’s suffering and their urgent needs to the Chairman of the Provincial Council. The women held the Provincial Council responsible for not taking action to save these women who had lost their families and were left with no support network.The Chairman promised to follow up on the list of priorities and invited the task force members to attend the next Provincial Council meeting to present the priority needs of Yazidi women and other IDPs and minorities.

Success

 

As a result of advocacy efforts and the continues meetings with government officials, the Ninawa Provincial Council issued administrative order No. 115 on September 07, 2015 which allocated a monthly salary of  250,000 Iraqi Dinar ( about $200) to each Yazidi women survivor along with  other minority survivors. The decision is effective immediately and the total number of Yazidi women benefited from this decision is 797 women based on the Yazidi women’s database in the Yazidi religious affairs directorate.

 

 

Activity 3: Create National Task Force (NTF) and build capacity in necessary skills to draft the final report

 

On August 17th &18th, IF held the second workshop in the PTF capacity building series which focused on data collection. This workshop was conducted in collaboration with academics and field experts including Dr. Ghaith Al-Janabi and Ms. Siham Abdulhameed –  Head of the Central Statistical Organization in the Ministry of Planning. During this workshop, 38 PTFs analyzed data collected previously on how women in Iraq are  contributing to peace processes and what areas they could move into to further these efforts. Part of the first day was devoted to reviewing the data collected by the NGO researchers, how they collected the data, and how they presented it. A standardized unified format for the work plan was developed based on the questions which were asked. The unified format organizes and presents in this information in a clear and unified manner.

In June 2014 IF in partnership with ICFJ developed and designed the TABEIR Iraq interactive mapping and resource platform. The platform provides a secure site where journalists and freedom-of-expression activists in Iraq can report on threats to freedom of expression and harassment and attacks on journalists and activists. IF and the network of FOE defenders formed through in-country trainings provided by IF’s 10 partner NGOs continued to update the map with new FOE violations. As of the end of March 2015, the TABEIR map has recorded 80 FOE violations. The map can be accessed from the following link: https://www.tabeiriraq.org/reports/

The Iraqi High Judicial Council, in cooperation with the Iraq Foundation and with the support of the US Department of State – Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL), has launched a mobile application that provides several services including news updates, investigative journalism, Federal Supreme Court decisions and Cassation Court decisions. This application comes as part of IF’s HEWAR project to boost the HJC’s communication with stakeholders and citizens. To download the application please use the following links:

As part of WIES support for FHH’s businesses, IF has established web based ad’s promoting for FHH’s business as part of marketing and networking assistance provided to the FHH’s.

The ads were disseminated through social media and Electronic journals in attempt to help marketing the FHH’s products and linking them to small contracts to support their businesses.
