Tamkeen: the first project to support girls’ education in Iraq


Ikram Charity and Earthlink company launched Tamkeen project. The first project to provide school fees for girls to help them complete their education and prepare them for a promising future.

“We are constantly striving to provide support to the community and provide a conducive environment for psychosocial rehabilitation through a series of charitable projects. We also seek to highlight those groups that have not been helped and to encourage government institutions and civil society organizations to take the same step. So, most of our charity projects target orphans. This time we chose girls because they are half the community and they are the first school for their children.” According to the administrative committee.

The representative of the Commission added that “Tamkeen project will work to provide scholarships for every smart female orphan who’s living in difficult economic conditions that might be an obstacle to her study. So far, we have been able to provide sponsorship to more than 90 students enrolled in the Tamkeen project and we aim to give more by including more students in the project. This is what Ikram’s team is working hard on, every day.”

He continued “We believe that our project will contribute to creating solutions to the problem of illiteracy in Iraq, even in the simplest way which will have a positive impact on the community. Raising the community’s awareness plays an important role in the establishment of a sound society that is capable of overcoming social and economic obstacles. Thus, we and Earthlink are devoting efforts to achieve this goal.”

How does Tamkeen work?

Tamkeen’s monthly scholarship is offered to outstanding students starting from the fifth grade till they get to university. The scholarships granting started at the beginning of the current academic year 2018-2019 after looking closely at all the study and living requirements for each stage, to allocate sufficient funds.

And as Tamkeen believes in the importance of having an impact on the community, the project will grant sponsorship to outstanding female students who can achieve a positive and tangible impact in the community. Students will be assessed for their academic performance and the most qualified female students will be selected. The institution will also follow up on their academic performance monthly, and by supporting reports to confirm their continuous study. To motivate students to continuously develop their academic performance, there are annual and semi-annual awards given to the most outstanding students. Noted that female students will be excluded from the program if their academic performance is going down.
