CHF Vitas Iraq equips public schools with desks and whiteboards
Under the slogan "Together to support the educational journey", CHF Vitas Iraq had the honor to contribute to the support of the educational sector in Iraq, by equipping public schools in poor condition, lacking basic necessities such as furniture and boards. For this campaign, 5,000 desks were exclusively produced in local Iraqi factories, and distributed to approximately 250 schools during the years 2017, 2018 and 2019 across the majority of governorates. The schools were selected based on the pre-assessment of their actual needs, carried out by our field teams. Moreover, a large number of locally produced whiteboards were also distributed, to cover a fraction of the actual devastating shortage in all public schools in Iraq, especially in the remote, rural areas.
