Empowering Iraqi Widows to Thrive (EIWT) Project

IF Launches Training Program throughout Iraq: January 2011

In late January, IF launched the first training cycle in five out of the seven training centers located throughout Iraq! The training program is the backbone of the Empowering Widows to Thrive (EIWT) project. During each training cycle IF will train 40 widows in each training center on a set of life changing skills, which will increase their participation in public life, improve their health, family well-being, interpersonal relations, and coping capabilities, as well as empower them to participate effectively in the Iraqi economy! On January 29, 2011 classes began in Chibaish, located in the Dhi-Qar province, Abu alkhaseeb, located in the Basra province, as well as Maysan. Training began in the Baghdad province in the Karakh location on January 30th and the Rasafa location on the 31st. In early February, cycle one training will begin in Mosel and Mdaina training centers.
