Yazda opened a new primary school in the village of Bakra, located 20 km east of center of Sinone Municipality in Sinjar District. The school consists of six class rooms, management room, teachers’ room, storage space, and two latrines.
The village of Bakra is located in a remote area distant from other towns and villages. The school had no school and children there mostly did not have access to basic education. The new school will allow more than 80 children to receive formal primary education in their village.
The community expressed their gratitude and happiness, and thanked Yazda for undertaking this vital project.
The school was opened in a ceremonial event where residents of the village attended along with representatives of several international NGOs operating in the region and about 40 future students of the school.
Yazda team also distributed some school supplies to the students attending the event.
Yazda put education as one of its priorities and will put all its capabilities to support the education sector in the Yazidi and minorities areas, especially that many students have been prevented from continuing their education after the Genocide committed by ISIS in 2014.
Yazda would like to thank everyone contributed into this project, especially our generous funder. We would like also to thank the engineers’ team who volunteered on pro-bono basis to oversee construction. We thank all the worker and craftsmen who participated in this project and thank residents of Bakra for their support.
