Nadia's Initiative Supports Hundreds of Female Farmers in Sinjar, Iraq

Nadia’s Initiative is excited to announce the launch of our Support to Women’s Livelihoods project that will benefit 345 female-headed farming households in Sinjar, Iraq. Nadia’s Initiative works to design sustainable development projects that are female-centric and target survivors in the Sinjar region. The aim of these projects is to strengthen the support systems for women in Sinjar and to improve the income generation capacity of women to support their livelihoods and increase their resilience. The people of Sinjar have experienced the worst crimes against humanity, and their crisis is ongoing. Women in particular have endured tremendous suffering and should now be afforded the opportunity to gain economic independence and provide for their families. Providing women with skills and support is fundamentally important to rebuilding the Yazidi community and is a crucial step to the formation of a gender-inclusive society. This project is implemented by Dorcas Aid International and is financed by the GIZ commissioned by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany.
