Empowering Iraqi Widows to Thrive (EIWT) Project

Cycle 3 Update: December 2011

As part of our efforts to improve the lives of Iraqi widows, IF is pleased to report that 280 widows took part in the third training cycle from 7 training centers, located in five provinces throughout Iraq during the month of December as part of the Empowering Iraqi Widows to Thrive (EIWT) project. 

During the training program, participants relieve vital education in life skills, health, conflict and family management, democracy, mentoring, and vocational training for select participants.  Upon completion, if hosts a graduation ceremony for the widows to celebrate their achievements.  Last month during November, IF held two graduations for participants from the second cycle in Basra. IF also conducted the graduation ceremony in Ba’ashiqa.  Both events were well attended by selected figures and well covered by the local media.
