OUR SUCCESSES IN Iraq

GOAL established a country office in Dohuk in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) in 2016.

With a clear need to move beyond direct assistance and towards the provision of livelihood opportunities for internally displaced and host communities so that they can start to rebuild their lives and reduce dependency on direct aid, GOAL commenced a $2 million livelihoods programme that included business development training, vocational training, business grants and apprenticeships.

GOAL reached more than 3,000 IDP and host families in Zakho, Shekhan, Bardrash and Sumel during 2017 helping to raise their level of income and standard of living.
