Education Cannot Wait during February

During the month of February, the office of the Public Aid Organization in Kirkuk province held several training sessions as part of its educational program, targeting both teaching staff and female students. The program included training sessions for teachers on capacity building, and modern teaching methods, and assisting them through critical thinking, sharing information, and different experiences to develop modern teaching tools. Several teachers from various schools in Kirkuk city center and in the district of Hawija participated in the training, which lasted for 5 days.

The program also provided a series of awareness sessions for teenage girls at the Al-Yamama Secondary School for Displaced People. These sessions addressed important topics relevant to girls, discussing self-confidence, self-reliance, and the motivators that help them progress in education. They also tackled the challenges facing girls in society and how to find solutions for them.

The Education Cannot Wait project is being implemented in the governorates of Kirkuk and Sulaymaniyah. Its aim is to provide training for teaching staff and enhance their skills in providing psychological support, first aid for mental health, and modern teaching methods.

The project also includes providing psychological support sessions for students and training on how to file complaints. Additionally, the project seeks to distribute informational brochures to residents of Kirkuk and Sulaymaniyah governorates regarding vaccination schedules and returning to school, while also contributing to providing students with school supplies.
