Post Election Democracy Project (PEDP):

Small Grants for Youth

April 2011 Activities

Youth Grant awardees in Baghdad continued the implementation of the “Iraq Free of Sectarianism and Racism” project. This project aims at promoting peaceful coexistence in Iraqi schools through holding 31 educational workshops targeting 750 students in middle and high schools in Baghdad (including Sadr city). The project is achieving noticeable impact as the school president of one of the targeted schools asked that the workshop be repeated in her school to train more students.  

Youth Grant awardees in Babil completed the “Radio Program to Empower Youth” project in Babil. The goal of the project was to spread the values of democracy through recording and broadcasting four radio programs led by youth in the Babil province. Topics covered: the concept of democracy and its implementation in the oriental society, youth’s role in the promotion of the values of democracy, how to reconcile between religion and democracy, and the importance of dialogue and openness to promote peaceful coexistence between Babil province residents. The programs were broadcast 20 times on 4 different radio stations.
