More Coming Soon

At this moment, a diverse team of educators, volunteers, local teachers, interdisciplinary experts, and participating testers with various backgrounds are working hard to establish a virtual platform that provides the tools necessary to make classrooms a safe and thriving space.
Many tools, materials, courses, and methods are being curated and put together to be made available for free.

With the green light of the Ministry of Education in the Kurdish Region of Northern Iraq and the support by the CD4D project of the IOM, this project will make it possible for educators, children, and caretakers across the whole region to access free resources to help them flourish.

“Your materials helped me re-discover the powerful beliefs that made me want to teach in the first place. The words and statements re-ignited my passion for teaching. It feels like I’m back in my first days of teaching, where I was enthusiastic and clear about my vocation and fully purposeful.”
